The 32 3/4 inch dress weight blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The steel hilt / guard is good but with age / tarnish and a fair amount of patina plus tiny rust spots. The fishskin grip has some wear but is good, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. The steel scabbard has tarnish and a small amount of patina, but is overall good. The sword sheathes and draws well.

NCO (rather than sergeant and officer) swords are rare to the market, so this well above average example is well worth £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference T82 (0802). Further / full sized images available upon request.
