    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but it's a fantasy piece, a mix between a m7 and m1. Nothing about it is any good. The scabbard body, scabbard throat markings, blade markings, double fullers, handle and pommel are all wrong.

    Alex,
    there is no disappointment, indeed, the outcome is expected. Post WW2 head with atypical blade and scabbard, otherwise I would not expect.

    Thx.Dean
