The blade is unsharpened, the tip is a little sharp, a few very minor nicks along the blade edge, and age spots scattered throughout with some light surface rust. The leather washer is intact.
The scabbard is solid with no dents, there is a "J-C" on the drag, a part of the throat piece appears to have broken off, and it is missing a hanger ring. It does not fit the sword correctly although its the right kind of scabbard, the curve of the blade is greater than the curve of the scabbard, sword goes in and will get stuck a couple inches from all the way.
