This somewhat abused example had external oil stains and the Sam Browne support hook, together with its leather extension, has been cut from the body. However, the stitching is still in good shape and, above all, it is firmly dated 1918.

Just a brief note to confirm that the sabre has been delivered today. All is as it should be. I have to say I’m impressed with the ‘custom’ packaging, obviously essential in your line of business. I have made a very quick inspection of the sword & it fully lives up to your accurate description, very pleased with the purchase.
