Cross guard is marked 28. Excellent checkered wooden grips secured with two large screws to the blade tang. Excellent black leather scabard with (blued) mounts and all stitches intact.
Hanger is fixed in the scabbard with a smart device. BLADE HAS TURNED FROM BEING IN THE LEATHER SCABBARD BUT IS NOT PITTED.

MOST OF THE ORIGINAL BLUEING REMAINS ON SCABBARD THROAT AND TIP.
LEATHER SCABBARD IS BETTER THAN MOST WITH GOOD BLACK LEATHER FINISH AND GOOD SPINE STITCHING. METAL THROAT AND METAL TIP ARE RIVETED TO THE LEATHER BY TWO RIVETS EACH.
