U813. MODEL 1833 DRAGOON SABER, 1834 DATED: This is one of the most elusive examples of the Model 1833 Dragoon Saber besides those issued to Southern States. It is the 1834 dated saber with United States Dragoon etched on the blade. The original government contract called for 1000 sabers with scabbard to be delivered by November 1. 1834, which Ames completed. The sabers delivered in 1834, 1835 and 1836 were etched United States Dragoon, and those delivered in 1837 and 1839 were etching United Stated. This example is the enlisted version with the steel scabbard. The grip is missing the original dragoon wire and 50% original leather. The blade washer is original and the 34-inch blade is bright with the maker mark faint but readable: N.P. Ames Cutler Springfield 1834. The inspector mark is under the blade washer and the marking is hard to photograph but readable with magnification. The scabbard is the correct lighter version with the split rings and has proper marks on the drag with a nice brown patina. $1900.00 REDUCED  $1750.00

U902. AMES M1850 MOUNTED INFANTRY OFFICER’S SWORD – NEW HAMPSHIRE IDENTIFIED: This is an Ames Model 1850 Mounted Infantry Officer’s sword identified to a New Hampshire Officer: Lieutenant Heber James Davis. Included with the sword is a framed commission document with a CDV for Davis, other documents as well as a post-war photo. Herber J. Davis was born November 4th, 1842 in Hancock New Hampshire and the age of 18, he enlisted in Company E, 1st New Hampshire Regiment. After three months, the unit was disbanded and Heber re-enlisted in Company K, 7th Regiment and remained there until mustered-out in 1865. The 7th Regiment serve in several different theatres of the war: South Carolina, Florida, Virginia,and North Carolina. Davis would promote to Sergeant, 2nd Lieutenant and 1stLieutenant, and would serve on the staff of General Joseph Roswell Hawley. Hawley spoke of Davis as “one of our bravest and brightest staff officers!” Davis would be wounded several times during the war, most seriously at Darbytown Road, Virginia.  It was reported in the Peterborough Transcript that while carrying a dispatch from General Hawley’s headquarter to another unit, Davis was gravely wounded and when offered help, he is reported to have said “never mind me, but deliver this message.” Davis was honorable discharged due to his wounds. The sword is an Ames Mounted Infantry Officer’s sword, which is similar to the standardM1850 Infantry Officer’s sword with a few unique differences: the narrower one-piecebranch guard and the blue steel scabbard. The guard is tight with 100% original wire and shark-skin grip. The Ames marked 30 1/4-inch blade has strong etching and several small nicks, but no frosting. The original blue steel scabbard has aged to a nice even brown patina with underlining traces of original blue. It retains all original mounts with the screws and has the original brass throat piece and original wood liners. Included with the sword is a binder with historical information, and all the documents shown on the photos page. When shipped, there will be two boxes and shipping has be calculated into this price. $3850.00 REDUCED  $2750.00

U949. M1832 FOOT ARTILLERY SHORT SWORD – HORSTMANN. This is a M1832 Foot Artillery Short Sword. The blade design is similar to that made by Ames and is unmarked. The hilt is casted brass with no rivets and has casting flaws common to the sword, and retains the original leather blade washer. The scabbard is complete with some leather lose, but retains both brass mounts and is very solid. Early collectors mistakenly identified these as Confederate because of the crude casting, but these are believed to have been retained by Horstmann of Philadelphia. I have a mint example for sale, U834, complete with a mint scabbard and frog. This one is available for less. $1200.00 REDUCED  $950.00

F117.   CONFEDERATE - CONVERSION MUSKET This is an outstanding example of a Confederate converted musket. The lock, bolster are very unique and not of a Northern design. In fact, when you remove the barrel and the lock you will find the Confederate arsenal assembly marks on several parts on the wood under the lock; on the underside of the barrel; and on three of the internal lock parts.  This was a common practice associated with many Confederate repaired and altered musket.
