US Model 1850 "Foot" Officer's Sword
This sword very closely resembles the 1850 "Mounted" Field and Staff Officer's Sword; they were approved on the same day.
The most notable difference is the absence of the US on the guard (absent on the Foot Officer's Sword, present on the Staff & Field).
West Point Cadet Name Searches
I have various information on West Point Cadets - graduates and non-graduates - from 1802 to 2002. If there is a name on your sword - and that name is registered as a West Point Cadet - I can very likely supply basic information on that individual. I charge $10 to search, non-refundable. If a record is found, I will forward that information on to you via e-mail; if no record is found, I will e-mail you to that effect. Follow this link to request a West Point Cadet Search.
