Totally untouched and uncleaned with a nice aged ‘grey’ look to the plating.  Full length blade, just shy of 6⅞” and very few it at all sharpening marks ( I can’t see any), a few age stains there and there and I’m sure this blade would come up beautifully if one were to clean it but I will leave that up to the new custodian.  Etchings are strong and clear.  Totally original pommel nut.  Slight small spot of platting loss to one small area of the guard.  Solid hilt with no issues and again a grew ages finish overall which could polish up nicely.  A great original scabbard too with solid snap-fastener and a button hole slit (common modification) to the top of the frog.
