SOLD   Ames Foot Officer Sword with beautiful engraved name on the hilt.  This Ames Foot Officer Sword shows some honest service but survived in gorgeous condition.  The original marine skin wrap is nice and tight.  The brass wire is also original and tight.  The full length blade is just sexy.  Please check out all the images I posted.  The blade has "US" and all the patriotic motifs we love to see.  The hilt is nice and tight and covered in gold gilt.  This Ames Foot Officer Sword is dated and nicely maker marked.  The end of the sword blade shows some campaign activity wear.  Looks like maybe he carried this Ames Foot Officer Sword for sometime with the drag missing off the scabbard.  


I received this from a friend who researched the name "What gave it away was the double middle name with the DL. That is very rare unless you have a middle name like " DeLancey " seeing " De" means "of" so it is technically two words.


He would have been the grandson of a New York Governor so that made him  a minor aristocrat in New York and the middle name is certainly on the uppity side.

Still the guy clearly did his duty but when his year was up he went home."


This Ames Foot Officer Sword is fresh to Brian Akins Antiques.  I have done zero research on the solider.  Please call Brian Akins for service.
