My house cleaning has brought this out of the safe ... something else just taking up room .. I know it has been sitting the safe for more than 30 years .... I believe it to be an Model 1860 Staff Officers Sword ... anyone got any ideas as to what it is?

I used to collect edged weapons of a variety of types before I was old enough
to buy my first firearm and from what I recall, Cap'n, you're correct in your
id, I too would not advise polishing or cleaning or any other sort of action that
would alter the patina; in my experience as with Lefty2guns is that collectors
really want it AS IS and yours sure doesn't look that bad even today.

Right on. If i were going to put it on MY mantle, I'd polish it up. If selling, I'd get to researching.
Best of luck!
