Manufactured: New York NY

Year: CW period

Model: M1832 Foot Artillery Sword

Size: 18.75

Condition: VG

Interesting odd sword that at first glance looks like a standard foot artillery sword except the pommel eagle is raised instead of cast into the pommel. Pean dome is higher than normal. Hilt feathers and pins are identical to Ames manufacture. Blade construction with fullered blade is the same as well.  On the obverse ricasso is a stamp that is partially obscured but it reads C. Klauberg - 159 William St. New York.  Carl Klauberg is listed at this address in different capacities as a cutler from the 1850's up to 1870's. He was at other addresses prior and after these dates as well.  It appears he made surgical instruments.  It is not known if he made this sword or had it made locally and stamped in the hopes of possibly getting a government contract or testing the sword market at the beginning of the Civil War.  This is all speculation but as this retailer / cutler has not shown up before it is the best educated guess that can be made. Interesting sword with a super rare maker/retailer mark. No scabbard exists with this example.
