This is a Knights of the Maccabees fraternal masonic ceremonial sword dating somewhere between the late 1880's and 1914 and manufactured by Cincinnati Regalia Company. The sword blade has the initials KOTM on one side and Peter Gutt on the other. It also has scrollwork on the blade and the initials U and R for uniform rank. The top of the handle has a tent with a soldier in front. The handle is made of a spiralled leather strap and gold cord. The hilt has a crest on it with crossed swords, and the initials KO and TM on either side, standing for Knights of the Maccabees, the initials M and C on either side of a tent, and U and R on each side on the bottom, standing for Uniform Rank. The scabbard has two mounts on the top and one in the middle. The sword fits nicely inside, measuring a total of just over 30". This sword has been in my husband's family in the central Ohio farm country for many years, although I'm not sure where it was originally from. The scabbard has the beginnings of rusting, and the handle has some leather strap loss. Otherwise, this sword is in great condition, and the patina gives it a wonderful look.
