1863-Dated US M1860 Naval Cutlass

425.00

Item No. 2624980

A nice M1860 Naval cutlass. 32” overall with a 26” blade. The heavy brass “soup ladle” guard has several shallow dents. There are no identifying marks on the guard except for a “5” formed out of small dots, a mark likely applied after leaving the arsenal. The handle is wood—the original leather and wire are missing. The blade has a nice patina with the original unsharpened edge free of knicks. Minor pitting in places, but otherwise a very good and smooth finish. The ricasso is stamped “U.S.N. / L R / 1863.” A maker’s stamp isn’t visible on the other side, perhaps worn down. There is a nice tight fit between the blade and the handle. No scabbard is present.
