Standard 1840 pattern as carried by Union Sergeants during the Civil War. This example with ordnance markings 41 to the guard, grip and pommel and A H C inspectors mark for A H Clark, to the guard. The blade is unmarked. About excellent throughout with slight storage haze to the blade and no damage. J H H initials scratched into the guard, the soldier to which it was issued. See The American Sword, Peterson, #10 for this pattern and further details. Superior preservation.
