This is the Model 1818 NCO Sword. These were not a very handsome sword. They were strictly for use and are from a period of early American contracts with Starr. The sword is 32 1/2" overall and the blade is
25" long and 1 1/8" wide. The ricasso is stamped "N.Starr US, P,ET. The ET stands for Elisha Tobey who was the US inspector around 1828. The grip was originally leather wrapped over wood, and there is no
leather remaining except for fragments under the guard. The blade has an overall pitting on either side indicating heavy use and possibly around salt water. It does have its original scabbard, but the ball is
missing off the frog attachment. This is a sword that would have been used in the time period of the Seminole and Black Hawk wars. This sword could very well have seen action with Andrew Jackson and/or
Abraham Lincoln. A good piece of Americana, becoming increasingly difficult to find.
