A fantastic fraternal Odd Fellows find in very good+ condition with only light surface rust as shown. IOOF sword with scabbard in amazing condition given its age, estimated turn of century. Scabbard is stamped ornately, "PAX AUTO BELLUM" and "PM." Scabbard shows no dents and has all three hanger rings intact. Blade and scabbard are well-made and ornate with lots of detail. Pommel is a Crown with Globe as shown. Handle is wire-wrapped leather; wire is loose but is not frayed or apart. Ornate and beautiful hand guard, with a bit of wobble to it as expected. Sword is inscribed on ricoso as shown, "George H. Gibson, Boston, Mass." A super example of this rare sword. Blade measures 27-3/4"
