Default RN Officer's sword

Just picked up a royal navy officer's sword, 1827 pattern, LOA 100.1 cm. etching looks a bit worn, bit of pitting, staining. mfg. plate on scabbard throat "Whiteman Outfitter Woolwich". guard, rayskin, wire wrap appear intact. folding portion of guard also looks intact. will post more info on arrival. hopefully more markings visible that may date it.

as an ex USCG officer, been looking for one in reasonable condition (and inside my budget) for a long while now. the early ones, pre 1929, post 1846, appear to be real fighting swords, as opposed to the slender 20c. stainless steel one i had in my kit.
