Turkish Sword Ottoman Yatagan, Greek Sword Yataghan

Antique 18th - 19th century Ottoman-Greek sword Yatagan with the scabbard with a characteristic ear shaped hilt. DETAILS: The hilt with horn grips scales mounted in white metal engraved with foliage and scrolls. The recurved single edged blade is decorated with silver inlaid calligraphy and is signed in the Greek alphabet 'MAXI MIXO". Leather - bound and stitched with spiral brass wire wooden scabbard mounted with locket and chape.
MEASUREMENTS: The total length with the scabbard: 68,5 cm (27 in).
CONDITION: The sword is in good condition except for some old repairs on the join of the white metal mountings.
REFERENSES: Yatagan's with Greek inscriptions are extremely rare, and over the years I have seen many Yatagans, but I have not seen a Yatagan with a Greek inscription, this is the first one which I have seen.
