Now that you mention it I bet you are right about the guard being made from a scrap piece of Sheffield Plate. The scabbard toe on the other hand is not sandwiched like the guard but is made from a solid piece of coin silver like the rest of the fittings. The only thing that I could come up with for the brassy look was possibly the fluorescent bulbs that we have in all our light fixtures?
