No Maker.  Nickel-silver hilt fittings show light surface wear/age patina with no damage to the knuckle-bow or serrated pommel nut.  Pommel features the later pattern pommel cap without the earlier style lock-down nuts.  Underside of crossguard quillon is properly stamped with the SS proofmark.  Black wooden grip shows uniform surface wear to the black enamel, but no nicks or cracks to the wood. Grip is complete with tight silver wire wrap and SS insert properly inset with no damage to the surrounding grip.  Silver SS Rune insert retains 100% of the black factory background darkening. Polished, matte finish blade measuring 33 1/4” in length, grades EX+ showing light surface wear/runner marks with several tiny nicks to cutting edge and is complete with white leather blade buffer pad.  Dent-free steel scabbard retains approximately 98% of its original black enamel with only a few specks of missing paint. Upper and lower nickel-silver scabbard fittings show light surface age only with SS proofmark on scabbard throat. Nice example! EX+/EX++.
