US Model 1902 Army Officer's Sword

The Model 1902 is very similar to European patterns of the time. It has a nickel-plated iron scabbard and black composition grip
The blade is made of stainless steel and is in good condition with the correct markings and very richly decorated.
The handle is specially made so that it lays very nicely in the hand.
A magnificent sword for the true collector.
