Hello Cotoroanta, the pics are not the best but what I can see looks like a period ALCOSO army saber in under avarage condition. The scabbard misses obviously it´s black laquer, the hilt misses most of the gilding. It looks to me like the hilt could be iron instead of brass or leightweight material which is uncommon and not often to be seen. The backstrap misses one gripnail o a screw. A plus is that the black part of the grip seems without crack and the grip wire seems ok. Nevertheless (and this is my personal opinion) if it is not really cheap I would avoid it. There are a lot of nice swords around and swords, especially common army swords, are not expensive even n very good condition.
Regards,


wotan, gd.c-b#105

I agree with Wotan on the desirability of the sword but it is original IMHO.
