Dear Mike,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be a US Model 1902 ARmy officers saber made by the company Lilly Ames Company in the middle of the 20th century.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 80 to 160 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
