A151. AMES MODEL 1850 FOOT OFFICERS SWORD - 1850 DATED & INSPECTED: The M1850 Foot Officer sword was adopted by the U.S. Ordnance Department on April 9, 1850 and Ames received the purchase order the next day. The brass guard displays a floral design with branches and scrolls cast on the lower hilt. Two blade lengths were requested; 550 with 30 1/2-inch blades and 250 with 32-inch blades. All were made with leather scabbards with brass mounts, and all were marked, dated, and inspected. Ames began delivery by March 10, 1851 and completed the order for 800 swords on February 25, 1852: 192 on March 10, 1851; 24 on April 24, 1851; 120 on July 31, 1851; 168 on October 27, 1851; 58 on January 15, 1852; and 238 on February 25, 1852. This was the only pre-Civil War order received by Ames. The exact number dated 1850 is unknown, but it is a good assumption these would be in the first two shipments. This sword is acid etched Ames, US dated 1850 and inspected A.D.K. Inspector initials A.D.K. and J.W.R. are on the pommel cap, and the drag would also have a mark, but this drag is worn from being carried. It has a 31 1/2 -inch blades, which narrows it to one of the 250 swords ordered with a 32-inch blade. The hilt is tight with much original gold wash and retains 100% original sharkskin grip and twisted wire. The original white buff-leather blade washer holds it tight; It partially covers the date, but enough is exposed to clearly see 1850. The blade retains all original etching under a gray patina and was never sharpened. The scabbard is complete with all original mounts and screws and is strong, but does show wear. 1850 dated an inspected Ames M1850 Foot Officer swords are extremely rare. Shipping & Insurance included! $2500.00
