Overall rig remains in excellent condition. Blade is excellent retaining most of its original bright polish and dated 1835. Ames marking are light as with many due to stamps wearing out frequently. Scabbard is excellent and fits blade perfect. The original white buff belt is excellent with US interlocking buckle. Overall length 26 1/8″. Nice examples like this have become very scare.
