Here's an good example of a completely correct and matching Army obtained from the Vet's family. The blade is very nice with some minor old fingerprint stains. The crossgrain is visible throughout, it retains a solid fit and ends at a perfect tip. The blade rates Exc+/Exc++. The leather buffer remains. The scabbard is steel based with a small dent to the reverse between the two scabbard bands. It has good plating with the zinc bands suffering some plating loss and pitting. One throat retaining screw remains intact. The type B generic crossguard is typical of these later examples. It's alloy based and is well detailed! All the components show matching patina. The grip utilizes a new type material made from an organic product, milk I believe. This was used for a short time by a few producers seeking an alternative to the oil based trylon grips as these materials were diverted to more essential war materials later in production. Galalith was soon abandon in favor of celluloid over wood or celluloid over plaster grips. I digress, the grip on this one has a couple microscopic flea bites and rubs but is near perfect. Ok, so I said this came from the Vet's family, for you guys who like to see provenance here you go!
