US Civil War M1840 NCO Sword – Ames 1864 . CWS88


U.S. Civil War M-1840 NCO Sword. Blade ricasso is marked Ames MFG Co. Chicopee Mass on one side and U.S. G.K.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 in decent condition. Blade in very worn condition with much graying and several edge nicks. Blade length approximately 31 inches and overall length approximately 37 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.
