Hello,

Nice Sewar.
I' don't know for the blade (I love the rounded base) but for me the scabbard is not very old.

Yes the scabbards of the other ones are looking older
Thanks Thomas

Hello Thomas,

Certainly a genuine antique blade! Fittings tend to be younger for old-timers like this.

How well does the blade fit? Have a thorough look at the scabbard, especially the wood and also the inside. If it doesn't look like a more recent replacement, it might have some age with possibly the later embossed bands helping to stabilize worn out joints.

Regards,
Kai

Thomas,
If and/ or when it's convenient for you, could I ask you to post a closeup photo of the end/ tip of the "crosspiece" of the scabbard, from "head-on"? A similar photo of the "buntut"/ bottom of the scabbard would be nice, as well, though I'm primarily interested in the end of the "crosspiece".
I apologize for my unfamiliarity with the nomenclature related to sewar.
Thank you.
Mickey
