In its original brass mounted black leather scabbard with a suspension loop to the rear side. Both the leather and the brass are stamped with the issue number 493.

Called Cabbage Choppers by the French soldiers of the time this was a handy short sword based on the Roman Gladius fighting sword.

A good interesting issue French side arm, these are only rarely found in their scabbards.
