    Default Old usmc sword looking to find out some info

    I bought this sword at an auction yesterday for $70. When I looked at it closer at home I got to wondering if this might be something more than I thought.
    It is marked USMC and the maker is Horstmann and sons Philadelphia.
    Is there any of you guys out there that know a lot about the older USMC swords?
    Pictures are the best I could do.
    Thanks

    Indeed - a Great deal.

    I believe it is from the 1890's to early 1900's
    - perhaps a little earlier. This design has
    not changed much.........
