Standard pattern (Peterson #138). 29 3/4” blade decorated with Naval and patriotic motifs in foliage with blank panel for officer’s name to the forte. The ricasso marked Henry Jacobs Brooklyn NY. That maker recorded in 1899 at 204 Sands St. Brooklyn. Blade excellent with minor finger staining. Gilt brass hilt with virtually 100% bright gold remaining. Wire wrapped shark skin grip. Rare combination of quality, preservation and early make. May have been made for the Great White Fleet of 1907-1909.
