This Model 1840 NCO sword was cut down long ago and made into a fighting knife. The knuckle bow was removed and the blade shortened.

The blade was cutdown to a length of 12.25 inches long with the usual point. The blade surface is dark with moderate pitting throughout. The maker’s name on the ricasso is unreadable. The opposite ricasso is marked “U.S. DFM 1863.”

Cast brass hilt has the normal ribbed surface on the grip and ball shaped pommel. Counterguard has both clamshell guards. Knuckle bow has been removed and the lower sprue filed down. One of the guards has a slight waviness to it. All brass has a nice light patina.    [AD]
