There is a 1 1/4 long dent on top edge just past halfway down the blade (3rd/12th photos). The'Jewell 1918' scabbard still has all it's original green paint, brass web belt hook still retains it's original shape (10th/11th photos). There is a dent in the leather near bottom metal tip (8th/9th photos). No rust on handle, blade or metal components of scabbard. Overall, even having the discrepancies I've mentioned (they're really not THAT bad), it's still an a very nice, very original piece of WW1 U.
