The blade is grey with areas of light surface rust along its length. Steel scabbard mostly smooth with a grey / brown surface. The brass hilt has a mottled and uncleaned patina. The leather covering the grip has lost its black surface texture and has dried, but remains tightly wrapped with the original wire. The ricasso is marked to the Ames company and on the reverse side is dated 1865.
