Investment Grade Civil War Ames Artillery Short Sword, Museum Quality, Must See
Most collectors of Investment Grade Civil War collectibles are well-insulated against market volatility, recession, and economic uncertainty. There has been no movement but upward movement where Civil War collectibles are concerned. Furthermore, you have the pleasure of owning and displaying your investments. Know that your investments in Civil War collectibles are sound and safe. Stay away from items with replacement parts and/or in poor condition. Everything I provide is investment grade quality. This is a Museum Quality, investment grade, Civil War Ames Manufacturing Artillery Short Sword, last year of production, 1856. If you only want the best-in-class, this is it. This is the finest blade you will ever see, a museum quality example boasting 95% full luster, you will never find another example in this superb condition. All proper markings are present; "Ames Mfg Co, Chicopee", U. 1856 on ricasso, inspector markings on both sides of guard, inspector marks on drag, Eagle engraved on pommel. I have been collecting 40+ years and have never seen another of these Civil War Artillery short swords in such excellent, lustrous condition. Top it off with an Excellent scabbard, soft and supple white-buff leather belt, with frog, what appears to be remnants of a manufacturing or inspection stamp on the reverse of the belt (see photo), and two-piece locking "US" buckle, ALL ORIGINAL, ALL EQUALLY FINE CONDITION. This set is amazing, investment grade, museum quality.
