Preserving the History of Antique American Swords

The Ames Sword Company

Ames is probably the most desirable maker amongst American sword collectors.  All things considered equal, these swords will almost certainly command a premium above their counterparts.  There is much already written about the The Ames Sword Company (herein referred to as "Ames").  In my opinion, Civil War Cavalry & Artillery Sabers by John Thillman and The Ames Sword Company 1835 - 1865 by John Hamilton, will cover most of the collector's curiosities.
