Mdl.1860 Staff & Field Sword

​A very attractive and historic presentation sword. The inside of the hand guard is inscribed "​ Presented to Capt. Wm.Fairweather  Company G 6th Company Regt. -U.S. Vols.- By his Shopmates May 13 1898" . The 6th Mass. saw action mostly in Puerto Rico with a total loss of 26 men. The sword is in really great shape and has many patriotic scenes etched on it's blade. It was mfg.'d by ​Bent & Bush -Boston , Mass.  ​The Span-Am. War pieces are fairly hard to come by due to the relatively short duration of the War.
