1845-pattern British Parade Dress Sword ("proved" on brass slug in blade by hilt). The blade measures approximately 32" and is exhibiting oxidation and rust throughout. Steel scabbard is dented in two places along the length so that sword does not fully rest within. Henderson Ames Co. (Kalamazoo, Mich) Knights of Pythias presentation sword. Intricately etched blade with Greek iconography and the letters F.C.B., signifying the fraternal order's principles: friendship, charity and benevolence. The blade measures approximately 30 1/4" and is in fine condition. The gilding on the scabbard is in fine shape but the silver coating is flaking away in many spots. Model 1860 Staff and Field Officer's sword. Blade measures approximately 30" and is in fine condition. Scabbard exhibits some rust and pitting.
