Made of leather and brass in the 1940’s, this leather scabbard is in GOOD condition considering it’s age. There are some slight marks and wear due to the age, but otherwise is SUPERB! No cracking on the leather, however there is some loose stitching and leather missing at the bottom. Marker’s mark is present, but difficult to read. Missing the 2 retaining straps, but those can be added. Originally designed for cavalry, this was attached to jeeps in order to store/carry the M1 Garand and other variants (see last photo for reference). A PERFECT item for any collection or display!
