The grip is missing 75% of the leather, but. The twisted wire wrap is complete and slightly loose due to the leather loss under it. The blade is straight, looks unsharpened but is sharp, has a few nicks towards the lower half, age spots throughout, light surface rust on one side on the lower half, the tip is sharp and has a very minor bend only at the last 1/8 of the tip. The scabbard is solid, two dents near the drag, and has light scattered surface rust scattered throughout.
The leather washer is intact. Length of the blade is 35 3/8" (1 3/16" wide and 3/8" thick), the sword is 41 1/8", and in the scabbard it is 43 1/4. Check out my other Civil War Items!
