      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.
