GBP 110.00 (UK Pounds)

The orange grip shows a couple of cracks and the zinc pommel has been overtightened causing the leather washer to split. I have not tried to force this, so don't know whether it will actually undo. The blade is clouded but not rusted. The fittings of crossguard and pommel are zinc, whereas the band is steel. The scabbard has one dent where it looks like it was caught in a car door and has lost most of it's silvered finish with some powder rusting.

I can find no date though when she did die, on the correspondence. Very rare to find identified party badges to such an early member of the party.

The book shows a great selection of dog tags, along with a comprehensive listing of these tags, their abbreviations, so that the lay person can translate 99% of the discs they have.

My understanding is it is of limited printing, which has only just been assigned and ISBN number and only just started to be registered.
