Ames Civil War 1850 Sword Acid Etched US - E Pluribus Unum on Blade w/ Scabbard You are offering on an American Civil War sword with scabbard. It was manufactured by Ames Mfg. Co of Chicopee Mass and is so marked on the sword and the scabbard. I believe it is a Model 1850, but I am very far from an expert - novice would be generous. The sword features gold plating on the brass with worn through spots as expected, the leather wrapped hilt with twisted wire has some very minor splits but is very much intact. The hand guard is reticulated with rosettes and flourishes. It measures 7 inches long by 4 1/4 inches wide. The blade is well set and secure. It is engraved from the hilt down the blade 18 inches with E Pluribus Unum and Ames Mfg, Co Chicopee Mass on one side and U. S. on the other. There is some pitting or light corrosion on both sides of the blade. We made no attempt to clean it. Overall length of the blade measures 30 1/2 inches. Overall length 36 3/4 inches.The scabbard also features gold on brass fittings and they are also worn as expected. The leather is crazed but intact without breaks. It is also marked on the end piece Ames Mfg Co Chicopee Mass. Overall length measures 31 3/8 inches.Total weight of the sword and scabbard is 2 lbs 14 ounces.
