This war dated sword measures 34 1/2" long with a 28 1/8" straight, single-edged blade having full-length single fullers. The steel retains its bright, original polish with some scattered specks of mild freckling here and there, as well as a few minor nicks along the edge. The Ames “scroll" trademark is present on the ricasso reverse, while the obverse is stamped and dated, “US/AH/1863". The cast brass hilt has a mostly dark, yellow-ochre patina, but does also have some large dark spots of verdigris on the reverse side of the grip. The scabbard is in fair-good shape with lightly dented brass fittings and heavily crazed and flaked black leather along the body. This is a very nice, Civil War dated Musician's Sword and would make a fine addition to a collection.
