Perhaps the finest condition USMC NCO eagle pommel. Circa 1845 stamped F. W. Widmann / Philadelphia on the cross guard facing the blade. This may be a one of a kind sword specially ordered by an NCO as this blade is slightly larger than the commonly seen examples. The hilt retains almost all of its gilt and the sharkskin grip is fine with all wire intact. The blade retains almost all of the original blue and gold wash with only slight fading. The leather scabbard is in exceptionally fine condition having large brass gilt mounts that retain almost all of the original luster. This USMC NCO Sword belongs in a collection of the finest arms and it will still be a standout.
