A rare maker on this one! It rates 10 out of 10 on McSarr’s SA rarity rating! That’s as rare as they come. Blade is a buffed example that someone tried a wee bit too hard to clean up resulting in the etch being lightened. Still retains its original shape without sharpening or retipping. Some light in/out marks. The blade grades a conservative Exc. Scabbard is nice with 90%+ of original anodized finish. Of course it's got all nickel ﬁttings and all screws are intact. The ball has taken a hit. The ﬁttings all show light period wear; ball has been bruised but not too bad. All the patina is matching and the ﬁts are as you expect to see on an early piece. Handle is chip and crack-free. Perfect inlays and 100% roundel enamel is intact. There are some light pressure marks here and there as we usually see. All the ﬁts are ﬁne. Lower crossguard is grippe stamped "Wf”.
