This sword is a Christmas gift for 1938. Engraving is done in a deep etched oakleaf and acorn pattern. The reverse you have a stunning blue panel with an Army eagle clutching a swaz. The spine is done in the usual laurel leaf pattern. Looking on the reverse of the langet you can see how the eagle was attached. The gold rates at 100% and the wire wrapped handle is perfect. Comes with a beautiful blued scabbard.
