What does this mean?

Dear Elaine,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be a Civil War U.S. M1840 artillery saber with scabbard produced by Ames in the year 1862.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 700 to 1.200 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
Georg

Hello, thank you for your appraisal. I have one question. You stated that is was produced by Ames in the year 1962? I'm guessing you mean 1862?

Dear Elaine,

Thank you for your email. Indeed I changed the numbers. Please excuse the mistake I corrected in the estimation.

With kind regards,
Georg
