This is a true US military officers sword. Not some cheap knock-off sword from Home Shopping Network or a knife store at the mall. I have it priced at $400obo ( cash in person offers ). It is in pretty darn good shape considering it is 50-75yrs old ( maybe older ?? ) e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are a serious buyer Would be a nice addition / wall hanger to any man cave or gun room. it is definitely a piece of American history and a great conversation piece to anyone I have ever shown it to.
