This lion head sword has a beautiful bright blade which shows hardly any wear. It also has a perfect grip and very detailed lion head with red eyes intact. The scabbard is all original and shows very minimal wear. The interesting part of this piece is the engraving on the rear of the crossguard. It is engraved with the initials H.R and has the owners regiment number and date. Just an awesome piece that would make a fine addition to any collection.
