Has both rings, which helps with hanging or even use. The one flaw is that about 3 of the outer curved brass hand protector on the handle has broken off. Appears from the appearance and look that it happened many years ago, possibly during use during the Civil War. Doesn't really detract from a sword this early and IT STILL HAS A GREAT LOOK. REALLY NICE AGED BRASS PATINA TO THE HILT AND HANDLE.FULL LENGTH BLADE, WITH NO BREAKAGE. Would make a great addition to ANY SWORD OR CIVIL WAR COLLECTION OR DISPLAY.
IT WOULD ALSO MAKE A GREAT DECORATOR ON A WALL, OVER A FIREPLACE, ETC. In a living room, family room, Man Cave, or office, etc. Even for a non-sword or non-Civil War collector, it still MAKES A GREAT EARLY ANTIQUE MILITARY DECORATOR FOR ANYONE!!
Blade measures 35 1/2" long, while sword measures about 41" overall. No markings that I can find. However, has really nice design etched on the top half or so of the blade. Has a great early look.This item is in the category "Collectibles\Militaria\1784-1860\Original Period Items". The seller is "marvinsmom9" and is located in this country: US.
