Civil War Sword in the Bay Area

I want to get my dad a Civil War era sword for Christmas, either an original or a reproduction. However, I would prefer to buy locally (Bay Area / San Francisco, CA).

I am willing to go as high as $500, but I want to see the sword in person. There are tons of these things online, but I am a bit nervous that I'll be disappointed. Are there any good stores in the Bay Area that carry either original swords or reproductions?
I never buy or deal with this kind of stuff (swords, the Civil War, weapons, etc), so any other advice you might have would be appreciated. I would prefer to stay away from anything Confederate because I don't think he'd be comfortable with Confederacy memorabilia considering the association with slavery.
