Battle worn sword and original sheaf; i have done some research and i believe this particular weapon to be from the french civil war period. It has initials engraved just below the handle; handle and blade are still fairly solid and as already mentioned it has been well used, therefore injuring and possibly executing many; the sheaf isnt great BUT it is original!
