Antique Masonic dress sword, late 19th century

Once upon a time, I decided it would be nice to have an antique sword. Ebay actually has a lot to offer, sometimes even actual combat or military swords from past centuries. In this case, I went with something I could afford. It's a Masonic dress sword, over a century old, I believe. I think it was from the late 1800's (19th C). The sword has the original owner's name etched into the blade artwork. This piece is definitely old and showing its age.

I believe these swords are numerous and not valuable. Still, it's kinda cool to have an antique.
