Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The presented object appears to be a cavalry sword from the Civil War Era. It was produced by the company Christopher Roby Chelmsford (MA) and is dated 1864.
Comparable swords of this type are regularly offered and sold on the international and national auction market.
This sword itself is in quite good condition but the scabbard is corroded.
An estimation would be between 300 to 500 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,
