I wanted to bring it down and show it during the club meeting and get some suggestions on how to clean it up, but with an hour drive and I have to be back at church by 5:00 pm, it is impossible for me to make it.

I just learned that this sword was possibly a sword given to a member of the Knights of the Golden Eagle. The landowner currently has it, but I would like to get it back and clean it up. The organization slowly "dried up" after President McKinely's death in 1901 (he was a member), but it is still in partial existence today. The organization was helped organized by the Odd Fellows and has traditions stemming from the Masons.
