Description:

Measuring 11 1/4 inches overall, with a 6 3/4 inch double edged spear point blade, with one side etched "*TEXAS*/NEVER*SURRENDER" and the ricasso marked "WILSON SWIFT/BROAD ST/SHEFFIELD". The tang runs the full length and width of the hilt, with a pair of horn grip scales, German silver guards in a fleur-de-lis pattern, and a Mexican-style eagle devouring a serpent on either side of the pommel. With a brown leather sheath.

Rating Definition:

Good. The blade shows a mixed gray patina, with shallow pitting and edge nicks. The etching is still legible. Some play has developed in the hilt panels, which also show some dents and verdigris. Tears and staple repairs are present on the leather.
