There is a bright iron or steel scabbard fitted with a gilt brass top locket equipped with loops for a ring each side, and a gilt brass chape with a convex end and button tip, which is damaged. Both mounts are, or were originally, secured to the scabbard by screws. The inner edges of these mounts have a simplified scallop finish on the obverse side.|
