Cross polished at the Ricassoes which are marked AMES MFG CO CHICOPEE MASS on one side( not deeply stamped but original and visible) and U.S GKC 1865 on the other. Steel scabbard with light surface patina. No dents or crushing. This Sword has various markings apart from the blade as already mentioned. The top of the pommel is stamped J.F. , and the scabbard chape bears the inspector's initials N.G.W. The other side of the chape bears some overstamped numbers 2 and B 14. This could relate to Troop b of the 2nd Cavalry but I cannot guarantee his. Overall a very good example of an iconic weapon. The hilt could be polished but it looks great as it is !

An excellent and unusual example of a Trade Pipe Tomahawk of, probably, British manufacture. Steel axe head , 6.5 inches across, with drilled pipe bowl on the top. Fitted to a 16 inch, drilled wooden ( striped maple?) haft bearing brass bands and lozenge style decoration. Brass mouth piece. . The head has some brown patina, haft undamaged. This type of Tomahawk was produced in the Uk during the late 19th and early 20th centuries and sent out to the uS and Canada for trade with the "indigineous peoples". They are more of a symblic piece raher than a fighting weapon. Overall in excellent, grade 9 condition.
