One the other side it is marked-
J.C.W. was a Union Government Inspector AMES sword factory during the period of the Civil War. The markings are all clear and can be seen on the blade's ricasso.
The brass hand guard exhibits a nice patina and has not been cleaned nor has this sword ever been taken apart.
The saber comes with the original all steel-curved scabbard still mostly in black and complete with both mounting rings. The toe of the scabbard is nicely worn showing real use. The scabbard throat is not commonly encountered and could be a period replacement.
