The 30 inch blade is in good condition with a little patina here and there, marked to Highatt (Naval Outfitters & Sword Cutler, 70 High Street, Gosport, 1855-1905) and firm in the hilt. The hilt is very good with much gilt remaining. The fishskin grip and twisted grip wire bindings are in very good order also. The folding guard works well and locates onto the scabbard retaining pin as it should. The sword knot is quite intricate and very nice, still in good order. The leather and gilt fitting scabbard is in well above average condition for such an old sword.
