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
