    Description

    Early US M1833 Dragoon Saber by Ames Dated 1835. Quill back blade excellent, generally smooth and gray with just some staining, some light sharpening and a couple of very small patches of salt and peppering near the tip. Hand engraved on the obverse at the base "N. P. Ames/ Cutler/ Springfield/ 1835" and on the reverse "United States" over a floral spray. Retains most of the original leather washer. Brass hilt very good with just a couple of very minor bends, with nice inspector's marks, branches with line engraved borders. Leather grip also excellent with twisted brass wire (rather than the spring like wire normally encountered) that appears to have been there since the period of use. Scabbard smooth and dark, untouched with a number of dents on the lower 2/3 with two very small cracks but very sound. Original screw fastened throat, the carrying rings are replacements. A scarce early '33 dragoon.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
