The U. S. Army M 1840 Medical Staff sword was fairly unique when compared to the sword patterns for both Staff and Field/Line officers and Non-Commissioned officers of the same time period. These swords were elegant in design and completely ceremonial in purpose. Original M1840s were European in origin, imported by Horstmann for US sales and marked ‘M.S.’ for Medical Service.
Our reproduction M1840 Medical Officer’s sword is the perfect addition to the Medical Officers kit. Beautifully gilded solid brass handle and high quality steel blade with military floral motif with the US Coat Of Arms, and gold inlay. Overall length: 36″
