This ornate sword was made by the Ames sword company. It is 42 inches in size overall and dated 1864. 26 inches of each side of the 34 inch blade are etched with floral designs, "U.S." and other patriotic designs. The brass handguard is cast with ornate decorations. The brass scabbard has ornate cast brass fittings and an inscription that reads:
"To Lieut. Jas. Magill, from members of Co. G, 3rd R. I. Cav, as a memorial of their appreciation of his ability as an Officer & Soldier, 1864"
Both the sword and the scabbard are hallmarked by the Ames Company, Chicopee, Mass. Research by a Civil War collector revealed the following: Magill enlisted on 1/11/1864 as a 2nd Lieutenant, on 3/25/1864 he was commissioned into "A" Co. RI 3rd Cavalry, he was dismissed on 3/30/1865, He was listed as: Detached 5/15/1864 Commanding Co. E (Estmated day), Returned 6/26/1864 (place not stated), Detached 11/26/1864 Commanding Co G (Until arrested), Arrested 2/15/1865 Awaiting Sentence of Gen Courts Martial (Estimated day). I have no further information on Magill. The sword is in very good condition but all three scabbard fittings are missing the screws on the back. $4,250

EW021U.S. Marine Corps training Bayonet, OKC3T by Ontario Knife company.
The 13 1/2-inch trainer has an 8-inch molded polymer blade. The “dummy” blade is colored blue to signify that it is not a real weapon. The blade is not removable nor designed to be disassembled. The trainer's hilt and handle are identical to the Marine combat bayonet down to the eagle, globe and anchor molded into the grip. Developers added a thicker gauge metal cross guard to better withstand the constant shock of training.
The Marine Corps plans to put the trainers in each of the Martial Arts kits distributed throughout the Corps, thus giving all Marines a safer and more realistic training blade.
Excellent condition $165
