US Model 1840 Foot Officer's Sword (Infantry)
This pattern is basically the US Model 1840 NCO Sword
but with design-work (floral motif) on the pommel, guard, and clamshell.
It's design was heavily influenced by similar English Officer's Swords (mainly the Pattern 1796 Foot Officer's Sword, 1796-1830)
and French Staff Officer's Swords from about 1820-1840.
West Point Cadet Name Searches
I have various information on West Point Cadets - graduates and non-graduates - from 1802 to 2002. If there is a name on your sword - and that name is registered as a West Point Cadet - I can very likely supply basic information on that individual. I charge $10 to search, non-refundable. If a record is found, I will forward that information on to you via e-mail; if no record is found, I will e-mail you to that effect. Follow this link to request a West Point Cadet Search.
