While no Federal saber contracts for the C. Charles Hammond and Son Company have been found, they did have contract in 1864 to supply the U.S. Ordnance Department with axes, hatchets, hammers and tomahawks. Perhaps his sabers were made for a state militia contract. He was located in Boston until 1850 when he moved to Cheltenham Township, Pennsylvania. Sometime after 1855 he moved to Philadelphia.

The blade is 35 ¾ inches long and 1 7/32 inches wide. It has a 24 ¾ inch wide fuller and a 17-inch narrow fuller. The obverse side has CHAMMOND stamped on the ricasso. It has a semi-bright patina with black age spots and no nicks. The hilt is a model 1840 two-branch guard and brass pommel cap. The leather washer is missing. The wood grip is covered with leather and wrapped with brass twisted wire. In some spots the wood is showing through the leather. The steel scabbard has a throat and two 1 ½ inch diameter mounting rings. It has a medium brown color patina with light surface rust. This is a nice example of a scarce sword manufactured by a company that not much information exists.  [ff]
