 This Fine Relic Has Been Sold. Thank you!
 
M 1841 Naval Cutlass
Near 5 Star Condition
 

Presented is an M1841 U.S. Navy cutlass that is a near perfect example of this most desirable sea service edged weapon. Because only traces remain of the customary Ames imprints, and none remain of the U.S. Navy blade markings, it is our conclusion that this cutlass saw heavy service at sea over an extended period. On the obverse ricasso is imprinted P.A. over BOT which is all that remains on the N.P. Ames over Cabotville, Mass imprint which originally marked the blade. There is no scabbard.

 

MARKINGS: It is marked on the obverse of the blade at the ricasso, P.A. over BOT. There are no marks on the blade's reverse. On the right side of the front of the guard is the number 69. On the left side of the guard at is edge is the letter P. The obverse quillion is stamped JJ or JI. The reverse quillion is stamped with a C. On the back of the crossguard is in large type imprinted 2L33. The 33 is stamped over 20. The last number represents the rack placement.

This is a rare find, particularly because most of these cutlasses have their guards and quillion bent and frequently have dented grips. They may not have the rack number imprint which shows it was a shipboard weapon.

FROM THE U.S. NAVY HISTORICAL CENTER: "A radical change in design occurred in 1841 when the Navy gave a cutlass contract to the Ames Manufacturing Company. This seagoing snickersnee was a throwback to the short Roman broadsword. A heavy, unwieldy weapon, it had a straight, double-edged blade 21 inches long and 1 inches wide at the hilt. The guard was a broad strip of brass. The entire cutlass was 26 1/4 inches long, and it hung in a black leather sheath. This sword went ashore with American bluejackets at Vera Cruz and Tabasco during the Mexican War.The M1841 broadsword wore out its welcome by 1860, when the Navy adopted a new design, patterned after the French naval cutlass."

DIMENSIONS: 26 1/2" long overall. 20 3/4" blade length         Hilt 5 1/4"L x 1 1/2" W x 1 1/8"T
Max width of blade 1 5/8"   Max thickness blade 1/4"
Weight 2 lbs  5 oz
 
         Sharp eagle imprint on obverse
                        Same on the reverse
            Rack number on inside of guard
                         Proof mark “P”
CONDITION: The entire assembly, guard and grip are in outstanding original condition with only the most minor superficial marks of age over the past 169 years. The patina of the brass is pleasing to the eye. The blade is tight and correct in the hilt. The two edged blade has a pleasing silver/grey tone with few dark spots, and only light pitting. There is no scabbard.
 
                                 Fine relic of our seagoing heritage, the M1841, Navy Cutlass 

 

This is a superior example of an M1841 Cutlass which Navy shipboard use. It will be appreciated by those who value only the finest!
