Wow! Look at this beauty! Upgraded scabbard with a portepee! The bright sailing ship etched blade on this one is superb! The details you can see in the etch are awesome! The etch and “F.W. Holler Solingen” maker mark are correctly executed! The tip is sharp and the fit is perfect! The blade rates Exc++ with a few dots of age. The original felt buffer pad remains intact. The early. dent-free, upgraded, brass hammered scabbard looks excellent! It provides wonderful detail, with the hand enhanced bands and random hammering spots throughout. Is shows light wear. It retains both of its original headless side screws. The scabbard sits nicely up against the crossguard and the button works well, as it should. The crossguard and pommel provide wonderful detail to the anchor and eagle. They are both nicely toned matching the scabbard in color and patina. The celluloid grip looks beautiful! No cracks or chips just a few small marks from wear. It has the correct twisted springy wire wrap, that remains nice and tight. This one comes with a correctly tied nylon type navy portepee as well! This is a beautiful piece that deserves a great home!
