During the 1840-1841 contracts to Ames from S&K were a number of types imported and accepted.

Does anyone have files/examples of those 1,000 nco swords?

I have seen a number of the cavalry swords but I have never seen an S&K nco or musician sword. Granted, the numbers are not in our favor but they must be around/known.

This goes back to someone that writes he has a wire wrapped S&K that "looks" like an m1840 nco and wonders if there is any association.

Any of the trial swords known?
