The sheath has most of the original blue finish intact. The mounts are nickel plated , this probably was issued to a Zouave unit.. Bright blade , no dents on the scabbard - no nicks or rust on the blade...This is a scarce variation , only Emerson & sliver produced the steel scabbard variation. You see scabbardless examples all day long - the sheaths just never stood the test of time. This is the only one I've ever seen with nickel plated sheath mounts. A rare & desirable NCO sword!
