I have had this portépée in a desk drawer for years. I cannot identify it. I will let the photos speak for themselves. Perhaps one of our sword experts can help us better describe it! (Any assistance is DEEPLY appreciated). [As often is the case in life, ask and ye shall receive. I have learned from a sharp-eyed reader that this is a 1902 U.S. Army Model 1902 portépée that was used prior to WW I from 1902 to 1912. Thank you to ZH from Massachusetts. Great area except for their baseball team. Sorry, ZH, I just could not resist! I DO thank you again for the helping hand].
