Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 1070-56

Overall the blade meas. approx. 26.00 inches long. It has an unstopped fuller that runs approx. 18.50 inches long. The blade is in very good condition with a surface that is bright with very light scattered mottling. The true edge has several small nicks. The obverse ricasso is marked in three lines with a faint “USN D.R. 1862.” No maker mark is visible but the cutlass was made by Ames. Leather washer is missing from the base.

The grip is covered in black leather but there is no wire wrap. Leather surface shows light wear. The brass basket and counterguard are very good but do have some light surface dirt and minor dings. Pommel cap is stamped with “D.R.” inspector’s initials to match the blade.

The leather scabbard is in fair condition. It has some surface finish loss from rubbing on the edges and the finial is missing. Scabbard is not the usual heavy rivetted variety. It has a sewn seam on the reverse with a leather throat that is held on by large copper rivets. Just below the throat is another piece of leather held by four copper rivets. This appears to be the remains of the frog. Rear seam has opened a bit above the missing finial.  [AD]
