Our Assessment: A nice honest piece of military history. As was the practice of the military this arm had the metal and the wood coated with linseed oil. It has hardened into a varnish that has protected the metal and makes it look darker than it is. It would benefit by having that removed and would cause a great difference in upgrading the appearance, value and make all the markings more readable.Missing both lock screws.
