This sword shows the following. Shows "IRON PROOF" and is etched with military and floral motifs. Etching is worn and shows up more as dark against the silver gray, but the various floral and martial motifs, a spread winged eagle on a ribbon with E PLURIBUS UNUM is visible on one side of the blade with US on the opposite side of this swords blade. Again condition is in near perfect condition with a very nice even patina. I did however clean the Guard Face Patina off professionally, due to the very dark patina making it difficult to view or read the intricate designed.
You can now view a very detailed silver looking guard with no blemishes. I did not touch any other location of this sword and do not see any rashes or pitting. This is definitely a serious collectors sword. Nice patina, strong, no movement, a high quality rare sword including original scabbard.
I do keep on all my swords including other antiquities a very light natural non build up oil placed in a non humid controlled environment. See high resolution photos for measurements and condition.
