The metal top of the scabbard throat has fused with the original leather washer above it. The original wooden scabbard has some defects as seen in the photos and NO drag. The whole rig is nice and sound and would make an excellent addition to any collection. No "rattle" in the sword handle, etc. 100% original and authentic in every way.
