    This is one I'm not familiar with. I'm pretty curious about it though.
    Masonic sword, maybe?

    OK...I think I now know what this item is...as ID'd by Bruce Stauff (a knife collector of immense knowledge)...it's a sword issued to the guards at a world expositions...like the St. Louis Exposition...or maybe the 1901 Pan Am Exposition that took place right here in Buffalo...thanks for looking...thanks for trying
