I have an 1850 Staff Officers Sword and where the makers mark would be it has the words Mintzer over Philad etched. Does anyone know if this is the maker or inspector and did a Mintzer make swords in Philadephia? I have Googled it and came up empty.

Thanks,
Claude Sinclair

I found my answer from Tom Nardi and another gentleman. W. Mintzer of Philadephia did make swords and buttons from a 3rd Street shop.
