Civil War-era U.S. Navy cutlass dated 1862 (Ames). 2 lb 4 oz, 31-1/2" long. A popular model, made starting in 1860 and used as late as World War II, with sturdy, single-edged, slightly curved blade, wooden grip covered with leather and bound with brass wire, brass pommel and cup-like shell guard. The blade on this example is marked on the ricasso with the manufacturer on one side (Ames) and USN / DR / 1862 on the other side (the DR standing for inspector Daniel Reynolds). Excellent condition and intact, no nicks or cuts or rust on the blade, just missing its original black-leather scabbard.
