Default 15th and early 16th century scabbard construction

I've been scouring this forum for information on scabbards from the late 15th (last half) and early 16th century (1st quarter) and their construction.

I've found some amazing stuff, like this thread:

... had a genuine *WOW* moment when I saw that Katzbalger scabbard.

What I'd like to ask you guys is:
  1. Did scabbards in this period have wooden cores? ... or were they 'floppy' scabbards simply made out of stiff leather like knife or dagger sheaths?
  2. Are there any good surviving examples of scabbards from this period that are avalable online through museum catalogues for example?

I'm mainly interested in the construction of these scabbards and surviving artefacts.
