More Information

Condition overall is good. Sword is solid, with only minimal play in the pommel. Grip, cross guard and pommel are generally tarnished. The bade is corroded/lightly rusted over much of its length. Yellow metal inlay is inconsistent over blade's length with large absences. Blade is slightly bent/warped, likely from having been propped up against a wall for an extended period.
