I need a price quote

I have a friend that runs a pawn shop. He lately traded for an 1863 Union Line Officers Sword, made in Trenton, New Jersey. The sword is in excellent to good condition, the Bail is missing from the handle but the blade is bright with some spotting but not bad, the scabbard has seen some use. But is not tarnished. How much would this sword be worth?

I'm not asking for bids but a general ballpark appraisal price. Anyone interested in making a bid can e-mail me at
