Dear Wade,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be a 1840s/ 1850s Eagle Pommel Navy Officer's Sword. The handle has an inlay made out of mother of pearl. The blade was blued and is decorated with engraving and etchings.
This piece is in medium condition and there are no serious 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,
Georg
