4.75" spearpoint blade.  Silver guard and pommel with bone grip scales.  Ricasso weakly marked "CURRENT/A. HOBSON/SHEFFIELD".  Silver mounted leather scabbard with gilt tooling.


Good condition.  Blade is bright with some streaking.  Top portion of blade has some pitting, damaging edge.  Grip scales has some darkening, turning a pale cream color.  Solver mountings have a dull luster, with some minor flaking, particularly on pommel.  Scabbard has lost some of its top layer with moderate definition remaining of gilt tooling.
