    Description

    Very nice Circa 1850 Sheffield Bowie knife with 7½" Spear Point Blade Etched on a Frosted Panel with the Motto "Americans Ask For Nothing But What Is Right And Submit To Nothing That Is Wrong" with Large "OK" in the Ccenter. Marked on the obverse ricasso "Crockes/ Brothers/ Sheffield". The knife is 11¾" overall with scroll engraved German silver cross guard and ivory plaque grips with a shield shaped German silver escutcheon inlaid on the obverse. There is no scabbard. Very fine condition, the blade bright with etching a bit light but totally legible and absolutely authentic, just some very minor staining, there is absolutely no rust or pitting. Very nice knife exemplifying those carried into battle by many soldiers during the Civil War.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
