Blade excellent to near mint with much original luster and just a few minor scattered stains with a small area of surface rust at the base of the ricasso, easily cleaned. The regulation style hilt with folding counterguard is about perfect retaining 95% of the original gilt, perfect sharkskin with twisted brass wire wrap and the original gold bullion sword knot. Steel scabbard with brass mounts, the mounts retaining most of the original gilt. The scabbard is overall brown over the nickel, completely untouched and would clean nicely, with absolutely no dents.
