No maker’s or retailer’s name, so most likely 1916-1918 when production took precedence to pomp. This sword is in very good condition save for one side of the fishskin grip, which has lost a small piece and developed a crack; a dab hand with some paste could likely make that blend away.

The exceptionally well etched 32 inch blade is in very good condition with minimal wear or patina spots (a couple of very small scratches), and is firm in the hilt. The brass hilt in very good condition; the folding guard section works wll and locates onto the scabbard’s securing pin as it should. The fishskin grip has a small section missing and a dryness crack. The leather and brass fittings scabbard in good condition for age. The sword sheathes and draws well. The all weather bag with age cracks and wear but a welcome bonus.
