M 1840 Cavalry Saber - Ames - Massachusetts Marked.  "Attic" saber with deep dark patina.  Blade is bright with slight cross polish. Steel scabbard is in fine shape.  It has a brass shield at the throat with the rack # 59. Scabbard drag is marked with the # 15 on the obverse and MS on the reverse drag.  Hilt is marked MS on the reverse knuckle bow. Blade obverse ricasso is marked US and ADK. Reverse ricasso has the Ames Cabotville address and is dated 1851. The pommel is also marked ADK and JWR. Leather grip has some loss but the wire wrap is all intact with no breaks.  A fine saber no doubt carried by the 1st Mass Cavalry when they responded to the call for troops at the start of the war.
