The reincarnation of the 1860 pattern produced by Ames with an iron hilt replacing the earlier brass hilt. Inspired by the Spanish American War which resulted in American control over Cuba, Puerto Rico, Guam, and The Philippines, it served in the 1910-19 border Wars with Mexico during which the US was invaded by Pancho Villa and his forces. 35 ¼” blade marked A S Co flaming bomb 1906 with US JHC to the reverse. The surface blue fading to brown. Wire wrapped leather covered grip complete with a few tiny blemishes. Excellent for the period.
