    Description

    Late 19th, Early 20th Century US M1852 Naval Officer's Sword. Maker/dealer marked on the ricasso "Carr - Mears / & Dawson / Norfolk, Va.". The owner's name "E. A. Nordstedt" is engraved in block letters in a panel on the blade. The sword itself is about mint. The scabbard is in excellent sound condition although exhibits considerable scuffing on the black leather finish. All brass retains most of the original gilt. Certainly worthy of further research.
