    Description

    U.S. Model 1832 Foot Artillery Sword.
    19-inch straight double-edged blade. Brass hilt with decorated on both sides of the pommel with an American eagle and shield. Stamped on the hilt UNITED / STATES / 1838 / WS; and on the other side with an American eagle over N.P. AMES / SPRINGFIELD. Black leather scabbard with brass throat and tip.

    Condition. Very good. The blade retains its shine and only displays storage wear. The leather on the scabbard has some small areas of surface loss and the brass tip is a bit loose, otherwise a nice example.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
