Here's a nice Navy sword that is depot marked. The plain blade on this one rates Exc++. The blade is nice and bright without nick, just a bit of age. The fit is nice and tight and the stamped with Imperial Navy inspection markings. The leather scabbard is in remarkable shape. No dents or bends. The brass fittings all have even wear, are correctly secured with staples, (the top is missing) and adorned with intricate engraved wave patterns. The chip and crack-free celluloid grip is in great shape. The original triple twisted brass wire wrap remains intact, one is a bit loose. The entire hilt is brass based and hand chased with great care. Both the front and back panels fold in and out correctly. The reverse also locks correctly into the scabbard. The reverse panel and the top of the scabbard both match reading: "N 411". The N indicates the Nordsee base. The tang has been expertly hidden with hand work disguising it into the lion's mane.
