This is an early short sword that dates back to the war of 1812 thru 1840. From a private estate in Spotsylvania Co. Virginia. It is in as found condition with an early civil war blacksmith forged repair to the blade. Possibly repurposed by the confederacy due to lack of funds for weapons. There is a stamped mark on the blade. Good historic relic from the civil war and before.
