Early wide blade NCO sword by Horstmann of Philadelphia. Horstmann NCO swords are distinct as they have a turned down counter guard. The M1840 NCO sword was the Marine Corps regulation until the change in 1859 which called for Marine Corp NCO's to use a sword patterned after the 1850 Foot Officer Sword.
