Complete with original field service leather scabbard, frog and straps, this is a very good World War One era sword. The 32 1/2 inch blade is well etched, some patina spots but mostly past the etched area. Tiny rust spotting to the hilt guard which mirror the aging elsewhere, so not a detriment overall. Some rust spots to the backstrap and other areas of the hilt, again commensurate with the sword as a whole. The original sword knot as with the leather scabbard, etc. are in good order. The sword sheathes and draws well. A well above average example. Further / full sized images upon request. Please quote item reference number B52 (515)
