What does this mean?

Dear Cindy,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be a Masonic Knight Templar sword made by Henderson & Ames. It comes with the scabbard. This piece was made out of steel, brass, and wood. Such ceremonial swords were used as signs of membership in Masonic orders, indicating the member's rank, and are nowadays still often on the market, especially in The United States. This piece was probably made in the late 19th century.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided. A fair market estimation would be between 100 to 250 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
George
