The hilt has a leather covered grip with twisted wire wrap. The leather shows some wear but the twisted wire wrap is 100% intact. The brass pommel cap, knuckle bow and counterguard have a nice light patina and nothing is loose. Top of pommel is stamped with inspector’s initials “G.W.C.”

Metal scabbard is complete with throat and both mounts and rings. The surface of the scabbard has a lightly cleaned appearance and no dents. There are some areas of light mottling. Drag is stamped with inspector’s initials “A.D.K.”

Very nice example.  [ad]
