Brass hilt fittings show light surface wear/age patina to the threaded type flaming ball/”waves” pommel and crossguard with fouled anchor motif on the obverse/reverse quillon block. Black bakelite grip shows light surface wear with no cracks or chips and is complete with tight twisted brass wire wrap. Typical low quality, plain, center ridge, plated blade grades EX showing surface wear/scratches and gray speckling to obverse/reverse, but no lifting or pitting, and is complete with tan leather buffer pad. The dent-free, gilded brass, hammered scabbard shows virtually no wear to the polished highlights and retains 100% of the matte gold frosting in the recessed of the hammered pattern. Scabbard is complete with figure-of-eight knot suspension bands. The scabbard throat is retained by one flush mounted screw. Nice original piece recently obtained in Germany. EX+
