Today I was lucky enough to buy this sword from a fellow who knew no history on it unfortunately.  I sure wish this dude could talk!  Well marked and made by Ames in 1837.  No scabbard, sorry.  

Overall condition is great with only normal wear to the grip, no rust or issues I can find.  No markings either that I can see other that the maker's mark.  Blade is right at 34 inches long.

I found this blip on the web:  This is the first "recognized" major cavalry sword pattern in the early United States and is patterned after a British sword of the 1820's. It is a "heavy cavalry" type and was carried by "mounted infantry" or "Dragoons". These "Dragoons" were trained to ride quickly to a skirmish, dis-mount, and fight on foot. In rare instances they would actually fight on horseback.

See the pics, they should tell you all you need to know from here.  ONE PENNY opening bid, so someone wins.
Also, see my other auctions for more great militaria - I'll combine shipping.  Overseas shipping must be sent via a way to have a signiture confirmation and that means Express Mail, sorry.
