Masonic Knights Templar Ames Sword & Scabbard Chicopee, Massachussets

You are bidding on a signed Ames Sword Co. Masonic Knights Templar ceremonial sword and original matching scabbard. It is in overall fine condition. The blade is etched with knights on horseback, flags and scrolls and has the owners name etched into the blade and scabbard. We believe that this was a commander or officers sword because of the high quality etching, enamel and the fact that the mounts appear to be silver plated. There is some minor surface rust on the blade and scabbard and some discoloration, but overall in nice condition. The sword measures 39 inches from hilt to tip. We believe that this sword was manufactured prior to 1925 when the Ames Sword Co. was bought out. We are starting the auction at a very low minimum bid with NO RESERVE! Insurance is included with shipping. Thanks for looking!
