U707. AMES M1850 STAFF & FIELD SWORD: This known as a Type-2 Ames M1850 Staff & Field sword. This hilt is tight with traces of gold wash, and a tight grip with 100% original shark-skin and wire. The original blade washer holds the blade tight, and the etching is strong with much original frosting, but some areas of surface peppers spotting. It has never been sharpened and has a sharp point. The scabbard still has the original bluing with no dents or dings, and retains all original mounts with some original gold wash.  $2100.00

U708. CLAUBERG – M1850 STAFF & FIELD SWORD: This is a Clauberg M1850 Staff & Field sword. The hilt has a little wiggle as a result of the blade washer being gone; however, it is in great shape with a good amount of original gold wash. The grip is 70% original shark skin with only one strand of original wire. The blade is over-bright with a dark area near the hilt a spot above the US and Eagle. The etching is strong with original frosting. It never was sharpened and has a sharp point. The scabbard has all original brown finish, except above the top mount, most likely due to being held there by an officer. The mounts have nice chase work and lots of gold wash. The drag is dented on the back side, but has a nice eagle design. $1700.00

U710. M1840 MUSICIAN SWORD – EMERSON & SILVER: This is an Emerson & Silver Musician sword complete with the original metal scabbard. The hilt is tight with a nice even patina. The blade is bright under a light gray patina is shows better than in the photos. It had never been sharpened. It is Emerson & Silver maker marked, and inspection marked US/DFM/1863, DFM is also marked on the guard. The scabbard is complete with all mounts and screws, and is undented on its body, but the drag show plenty of wear dings. You will often see the selling in the $500-$750 range, but I do not believe they command that high of a price even if mint. This might not be mint, but it is a lot of sword at this price. Shipping is included. $300.00

U715. HORSTMANN MOUNTED INFANTRY M1850 OFFICER SWORD: It is rare to find an example of a Horstmann Mounted Infantry Officer sword! This sword shows use, but not abuse. It has a little wear on the top of the grip, retains 100% original double-strand wire, and is tight. There are traces of gold wash on the guard with very nice copper-brown patina on the expose brass. The blade has strong etching with some areas with dark spotting and a strong tip, and is Horstmann marked. The metal scabbard has a deep brown patina, retains all mounts with screws and wear on the drag.  Overall, this is a rare and hard to find sword. $1750.00

U716. AMES M1850 FOOT OFFICERS SWORD: This is an early example of an Ames M1850 Foot Officers sword. You can identify the early swords by the maker mark and the size of the block US etching. This sword has the circle Ames needle point maker mark and the Ames scroll mark, as well as the smaller block US. This sword has seen use, but is still in great condition. The hilt is tight with 100% original shark-skin grip and double strand wire. There is still a good amount of gold was with a pleasing copper-brown patina. The etching is strong and still has some spots of frosting. The scabbard is solid with crazing and some leather loss, but is complete. The top mount of the scabbard is Ames marked and the drag has the officers name “Hertfelder.” The name is not enough to make a positive identification. Here is an early example of a key sword from the Civil War.  $1250.00
