    The main pic is not great. But I am not liking all the pitting to the hilt and also the lack of the pommel securing nut. I would certainly pass on it. Might be a poor condition original or a cast fake. But I don't like it.

    Numbers 1 to 4 on the grips would indicate wartime production.

    Take a look here:
