I have had this sword for sometime. don't know the year in was manufactured or how it was used. maker mark on the blade is H.J. Hirsch, Chicago. Any info out there. I located this coin on line and found the back very interesting.

    AR8Jason, The H.J. Kirsch is script under hilt and it also has USN on the blade.

    Also a very interesting article on the Hirsch family.

    AR8Jason,
    What I have found is James H Hirsch Manufacturing Company of uniforms and equipment, Chicago since 1897.

    The sword is a US Naval Officers dress sword. See if it matches this one.

    Um..... Interesting Stuff. Missing people a Traveling Sales Man Goes Missing And Is Quoted as " Selling Rat Poison" Sounds Like Some Mobster Story.
    Nice Sword
    Thanks For Sharing.
