Article about: HI,THANKS FOR THE REPLY AS IAM NOT SURE IF THE TANG HAS BEEN CLEANED AS YOU WOULD THINK IF IT WAS THE BLACK PAINT WOULD HAVE COME OFF ?NOT SURE BUT I THINK MAYBE NAVY BLADES WERE MADE DIFFER
thanks steve,thats nice to know!can i get your opinion on the last picture i posted witch do you like better as the tassle color goes,the one thats on it now/darker in color,or the one that came with it its lighter?thanks as not sure if iam keeping both unless i get another navy.. its driveing me crazy i just dont want to regreat the tassle for the color...
i still cant make my mind up as to witch looks better but iam thinking the darker co co color one does?
The one that is on there now, the dark one, looks real nice to me, as it seems
to match the grip material ! ( My computer screen is on 100% brightness,
but is still not bright enough....... ! )
Is the 'brown' one actually 'red' ? ! ?
I'm wondering if the colour of the tassel has something to do with what branch
an Officer was in ? I don't know a whole lot about them................
The dark brown tassel is the correct one for your sword. The lighter brown tassel is for Army swords of all officer ranks after they discontinued the multi-colored rank designation tassels mid-war. The Navy tassels were always just the dark brown. Jim
