Standard features include a brass handle with eagle cast on the pommel, cast fish scales for the grip, blade has two fullers stopped with the ricasso on the upper blade, and single fuller on the tip, scabbard is leather with brass mountings. Sword was manufactured by NP Ames, Springfield, Massachusetts. Mark on the ricasso: "N P AMES / SPRINGFIELD" and "UNITED / STATES / 1836. Additional inspector marks on handle, ORD. HKC Mark.Blade length 19in. Condition is great for the age, with the original belt and scabbard which are hard to find especially in good condition. Very old and interesting sword!
