C. ROBY US MODEL 1840 N.C.O. SWORD WITH ECTHED BLADE

$650.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 637-151

This specimen is a C. Roby Manufacturing Company product referred to as a Model 1840 N.C.O. sword. In very good overall condition, these swords were carried by Federal non-commissioned officers as a sign of authority in the ranks. What is highly unusual about this M1840 NCO specimen is that each blade flat is nicely embellished with floral scroll engravings along with the script letters “U.S.” letters and the “spreadwinged eagle.” Sword is 38¼” long and has no scabbard. The 32”long straight sword blade wears a medium gray coloring with just minor scattered areas of rust pitting. Etching still retains a pleasing gray luster. Sword’s brass hilt features grips with a simulated cast brass, wire wrap cover with a single shell-style guard. All brass wears an uncleaned, mellow bronze patina. Knucklebow bears no inspector’s mark. The single-edged blade features a stopped single fuller and a plain, unmarked ricasso. Etched above on the reverse ricasso is the maker’s name “C. ROBY / W. CHEMLSFORD / MASS.” in three lines.
