The 25.75″ blade is marked on the reverse "U.S.N. / D.R. / 1862" and has no visible maker's marking (not unusual because some were so lightly stamped that even light cleaning would remove them). The blade has been lightly cleaned with a lot of original polish remaining and minor faint pinprick pitting. The brass guard has a Navy control number "11M/941" stamped on the top. The basket handguard has only a couple of tiny dents and about 60 percent of the original gilding remains on the brass. The blade washer is intact and the grip retains all of the wire binding with the leather wrapping in excellent condition. The leather scabbard is of the type fabricated in the US Navy yards with the riveted seam on the back and it is in fine condition with supple leather and minor surface crazing. RR Auction COA.
