Ok IMHO this is the best example in the world. It you are fussy this is for you. The blade looks great! The tip is rounded as all the later ones are. It has a perfect fit. The blade is marked at the riccasso but sorry I do not recognize it. The blade rates an easy NM. The brass based, dent-free, gold gilded, hand chiselled scabbard is also in great condition! The details and hand enhancing are beautifully displayed throughout. The guiding remains in excellent condition. The brass based hilt and pommel are beautifully detailed and are in excellent condition! Look at the quillion end lions, great stuff here! Again the gilding is top notch! The real mother of pearl grooved grip plates are damage free. The case is a beauty with minor storage wear
