US 1840 pattern (Peterson #32). German manufacture as supplied to both the Union and Confederacy. 35 ¾” blade with smooth gray patina. Brass hilt with wire-wrapped leather covered grip. Completely unmarked. These were produced in Germany to the US pattern. Those sold to American dealers who supplied them to the government were maker marks. Those sold for Confederate use were produced unmarked to prevent scrutiny by the Federal Government and run through the blockades at Southern ports. The return trips of the blockade runners were also critical to the Confederacy as they carried cotton and tobacco, the export of which supported the economy of the South.
