The blade is 3/8ths inches thick and 1 1/4 inches wide at the hilt. The grip is in nice period condition with the sharkskin intact as well as the wire wrapping.The guard has just a little wiggle but not much. Overall it is in fine condition with great patina. I was limited on the number of photos but you can see the blade etchings are all clear and nice. A few discoloration spots on the blade but overall exceptional for a sword that truly saw action!
Nice scabbard with normal wear to the original browned finish. The fittings are all tight and show some age discoloration. Check out the photos, and contact me if you have any questions.
