- Price: $795.00
- Maker: US
- Model: Model 1840
- Description: This war dated sword measures 38 inches long with a 31 1/2 inch straight, single-edged blade having full-length single fullers. The steel retains much of its bright, original polish, and is very lightly maker marked: C. (ROBY) / W. CHELM(SFORD MS.) on the ricasso reverse, while the obverse is stamped and dated, US / 1863 / F.S.S.. The cast brass hilt has a mottled yellow-ochre and brown patina, with F.S.S. inspector stamp on the knucklebow. The scabbard is in fair-good shape with lightly tarnished brass fittings and heavy crazing and flaking along the black leather body. A non-regulation, brown leather frog is included. This is an extremely nice, Civil War dated NCO Sword, by a desirable maker, and would make a fine addition to a collection.
