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.
