Real Civil War Ames Chicopee Mass Us 1863 Cavalry Sword W Scabbard :
ORIGINAL 1863 CIVIL WAR AMES MODELUS LIGHT CALVARY SWORD WITHSCABBARD.
PICTURES SHOW CONDITION.
To the best of my knowledge both sword and scabbard areall original with no modifications.
In my opinion the sword is in good shapeconsidering it is 150 years old(handle has a couple partial cracks).
The scabbard is missing one of the rings and has a few dents but the sword fits nice and snug.
On one side of the blade, the company, Ames Mfg Chicopee Mass is worn but visible (pic3), on the other, U.S. D.K. or possibly D.R (inspector initials) 1863 is visible (pic2).
Overall length of both the sword and scabbard is 43".
Separately the measurements are approximately 36.5" long for the scabbard and 41" for the sword. The blade length is approximately 35".
