    Greg,

    Your knot is a nice US National Guard identified knot that was issued to a Signal Corps unit. It is nice to find these unit marked knots. This style of leather knot was first issued in black color up until sometime before circa 1902 when they became russet color to match the new brown leather accouterments. Look closely and see if you can see a two or three letter inspector stamp and date on the strap. This will help date the knot exactly. A very nice and relatively scarce knot nowadays.

    - Do you believe the style would fit the timeframe of the sword? It looks like it has been with the sword a long time, and seems to fit as if made for it. I'm really not sure of the age of the sword. Most Le Page-style swords are dated to the First Empire timeframe, but I think this one may be a bit later.
