    Is it possible it was assembled from parts...maybe a hundred years or so ago? Like from multiple swords?

    Hard to tell from here but if no nicks them maybe not. Even our current officers played with their swords and those saw some unusual damages... No doubt though, at the time they were a battle...

    I had to make stencils once for a quartermaster, one of my first jobs in the army as a young soldier. That's the material I had pictured too...

    The brass was an essential metal for cross guards and baskets, brass will take the edge of an opponent's blade and hold it as it digs in. This allows a parry. Steel later worked fine for using a...

    Thought there was something to them not being there a while back. I had a carbine I wanted to replace the handguard on, but sold it so problem solved.

    That would be nice, specially in #5 rifle. I had a long once...just the butt. Only one I ever saw.

    Yup it suggests mail call. I just wonder at his complete lack of weapons.

    I wonder if a more recent copy of a Navy sword scabbard would fit this one? Those can be had and then sell the blade separate... You'd need to actually fit it first though...

    He doesn't, he just reads the OP question and hits reply. Never mind.

    So, the butt still wobbles, not surprising as it did and that was where we started... That's why when I first read this,...

    VERY nice sword, that's a pipe back isn't it... Seldom seen except in museums, the scabbard would have been of leather wouldn't it? Just brass fittings, that's why they didn't survive. Nice.
