This piece has the fouled anchor etch, which has been perfectly executed. The blade is absolutely beautiful with a nice etch and etched double oval Horster maker mark. The blade rates a solid Exc++NM. The desirable hammered scabbard remains dent free, which is hard to come by with brass being such a soft metal! Both throat retaining screws remain unturned and intact. The crossguard and pommel area nicely detailed and remain in great condition. The wood based celluloid covered grip remains in great condition with no chips or cracks. The wire wrap remains nice and tight. Finally a near perfect cellon Navy portepee finishes this nicely. A nice piece with the upgraded scabbard and nice etch!
