Wire wrapped leather grip also about perfect with just a couple of very light, really negligible, finish cracks. Scabbard excellent with smooth dark patina and just some scattered very light surface rust, minor. Dents on both sides just above the lower ring mount and just above the drag, no breaks or cracks.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
