GOING TO SELL TO HIGHEST OFFER! The knife appears to be all original, as well as the scabbard. It is an excellent conditioned piece for the age and rarity. The handle is excellent with no cracks or chips. The threading at the end of the scabbard has rotted (reason for black tape).
The belt connecting piece of the scabbard is gone. The locking mechanism in the scabbard works well.
