This is a dress sabre used from the 1890's up through WWII. It has a Dove's head pommel and a P guard. The sabre is nickel plated except for the scabbard that is painted black. The metal part of the sabre have about 80%of the plating left.The blade has some nicks in it from probably playing swords. There is one dent down at the drag and 16 up from the dent there is electrical. Tape wrapped around the scabbard, I don't know why. I don't feel a dent or any other problem. The paint is peeling off, about 60% left.
