Sales enquiries

Actually GRI swords are very rare. This one has initials to the leather bag "R O E D", so it may be possible to research the original owner.

The 32 inch blade has been replated, so the etching is feint but the blade looks good. Blade firm in hilt. Hilt above average / good. The grip with some loss / damage and perhaps glue on it. Leather fields service scabbard with age and wear, especially to chape end. Plated steel scabbard mostly good, with original dress belt attached. Sword sheaths and draws well. Sword knot falling apart. Leather carry case good but aged.

Don't dilly or dally; oops, too late! Please quote item reference N03 (1304). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
