Rare sword features a brass hilt with polished black wooden gilt wire bound grip with a crowned eagles head pommel. The guard is in the form of a deeply feathered wing. The scabbard leather is all intact as well as the stitching. Beautifully etched and blued blade is EF Horster marked. It has some age. The blade has been retipped, when, who, where, I do not know. I might guess a previous collector as these leather scabbards want to shrink over time, this one has and the sword will not fully seat all the way into the scabbard remaining 1/4" out. I'm tempted to lift the upper scabbard fitting up 1/2" to fix this but prefer to leave these things as they are.
