I just acquired this sword. It is unmarked. Is this common? I wanted to ask for any input anyone has about it. Thanks in advance.

I have one like it with no markings. According to my research, US ordered a large number of these from European makers at the very start of the Civil War, 1861-62. They were purposely left unmarked but I can’t remember why now.
