Here's a desirable matching example! The blade on this one rates Exc++! The tip and fit are perfect, all of the bluing remains intact except where it has rubbed the runners from drawing it in and out. It is nicely maker marked! The blade is stamped 42fze indicating the year of construction (1942) and the manufacturer. The blade is also stamped "7432" matching the scabbard! The scabbard is in nice shape! It shows the lightest wear and loss of finish while remaining dent-free. It has it's side screw. The hilt is in excellent shape as well! The brown multi-toned bake-lite grip plates are in beautiful condition but the front grip plate has a hairline across the upper area at the screw. No chips. This piece is profusely inspection stamped. This one also comes with a good soft and supple frog. The frog is marked with a RBN# but sorry not clearly. It has all of the stitching and rivets intact Overall this is a great piece!
