U.S. Civil War M-1840 NCO Sword. Blade ricasso is marked Ames MFG Co. Chicopee Mass on one side and U.S. G.W.C. 1864 on other side. No scabbard (which is quite common to be missing since the scabbards were mostly made of leather and typically did not last well). Brass hilt good condition. Blade length approximately 32 inches and overall length approximately 38 1/4 inches. Well used and heavily worn condition
Additional Notes: The Model-1840 NCO (Non Commissioned Officer) sword was intended for sergeants and were ceremonial in purpose, being used to convey rank and to signal movement in drills. The sword could be used in a fight, but typically only as a weapon of last resort.
