The sword has an overall length of approximately 33 inches. The blade has some dark spots but overall it remains quite bright. The brass hilt has some verdigris and an overall uncleaned patina, carved bone grips exhibit a few tight cracks. The scabbard is somewhat dry, with a loss of finish to the leather. The bottom few inches of the scabbard and the drag are gone and the seam is partially open.
