U.S. MODEL 1902
OFFICER'S DRESS SWORD
INSCRIBED
1ST LIEUT. J. MELZER

This is a standard Model 1902 Officer's Dress Sword.  It is correctly nickel plated with a solid horn grip and a beautifully etched blade.  The blade bears the US on the right and Lt. Melzer's name on the left.  The ricasso is etched THE HENDERSON AMES COMPANY,  KALAMAZOO, MICH.  The blade is in exceptionally nice condition with very attractive full etching.  The outside of the scabbard and the hilt are deteriorating slightly (the nickel is beginning to bubble).  I think this is a fairly early version of this sword but I have no information on Lt. Melzer.  SOLD!!
