We offer for purchase this circa 1930's Vintage Knights of Columbus Fraternal/Ceremonial Sword and Scabbard made by Lynch & Kelly, Utica, NY. This sword is "The second major type of sword, dates back to mid to late 1930's and has the head of Christopher Columbus, the Order's patron, on the grip cap. The sword is worn hanging from the Service Baldric on the left hip and Columbus' head is facing forward. If you were looking at the front of the sword, Columbus' head is facing left." The sword and scabbard do have age wear and the scabbard has the expected pitting but this is a wonderful vintage item for display purposes. This sword has never been sharpened or altered. The grip does show some wear as shown in our image and the Pommel has the head of Christopher Columbus facing to the left opposed to the modern 1940's to the present versions which face directly toward the viewer. The sword measures a total 34 1/2" the scabbard measures 30" and when combined and the sword placed within the scabbard a total length of 37" is achieved. To our knowledge there have been no repairs to this item. Shipping and handling is $20.00 in the Continental U.S. Insurance is available for an addition fee upon request.
