This nice example can only be faulted for the dent at the base of the scabbard, the lack of maker mark and certain neat service repairs to the straps with needle and thread. This is an early example with silver plate finish throughout.

Many thanks for letting me know, can confirm it arrived this morning, safe and sound.
Marvellous piece, thanks again!

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.
