This is a quality re-creation of
a model 1860 Ames US Naval Officer's cutlass! They are
called Officer's Cutlass but are actually a senior enlisted
Cutlass & most were privately purchased during the Civil
War by Petty Officer's, Chiefs, (Senior Enlisted) etc.,
that could afford a fancier Cutlass then the standard
issue. It has 26" curved blade is 1 3/16" wide at ricasso.
Marked AMES MFG CO CHICOPEE MASS. on one side & USN DR 1862
on the other. Does NOT have any cheesy import markings like Made in Mexico,
Pakistan, India, Etc. Leather grip with wire wrap. Brass pommel cap
& guard with USN cutout! Solid, rugged cutlass that really
displays well! I have sold many of these to active duty US Navy Personnel to
be given at Retirement, Promotion, as an Award, for Naval Schools Honor Grads,
etc. Scabbards are availbale, please see my other
auctions. I have seen these Cutlasses aged down & peddled
as the real thing for big $, but this one is a bargain at
no reserve! Shipping is $20 in Continental USA. Please view my
other auctions for more exciting items!
