Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The presented object appears to be a Model 1860 light cavalry sword made by Ames. The blade is stamped" Ames Mfg Co Chicopee Mass" and on the other side "US GWC 1864".
This piece is in medium condition and there are damages visible.
An estimation would be between 150 to 300 USD.
This estimation is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
With kind regards,
