first, I apologize for the crappy pictures, taken, at night in a car - sounds weird. he works where he could not bring the sword into the building, so we went out to his car.

Description is - about 3 feet long, the handle / guard appears to be brass - the blade is nickle plated, but the design is light - I assume that it was plated after a light buffing. Eagles, 13 stars, etc

Has writing of manufacturer, but very hard to read, he looked at it in the light the next day - believes it says Phila. xxx (something)

Not much I know - I do think its original

Hi Ed,
It looks like a US M1872 cavalry dress sword.

thanks guys, it does look like that model

the guy said he found it in the attic of his house. How come all I find are dusty boxes with nothing in them?
