    The hilt fittings are standard army with what looks to be an officers tassle (blue and brownish gold). Scabbard "should be" brown painted steel with hardware matching that of the hafting. The blade is something else entirely. I have had several of these where the owner replaced the simple steel military blade with a family one which was a big honor to own/carry/use.

    For a complete and thorough accesment of the sword, you've got a lot a disassembly to do! Get some help from those that have done it before... it's not as easy as you'd think!
