The USMC NCO Saber with Scabbard is an authentic USMC issued saber. These swords were used by the Marine Corps at Camp Pendleton for a number of years before being sold as surplus. They are produced to military specifications and purchased by the Defense Logistics Agency who issues these swords along with thousands of other items for DLA Troop Support initiatives. Each of these USMC NCO Sabers are produced by Windlass Steelcrafts under their Atlanta Cutlery line which is a prime contractor for this saber using CAGE code 0VE69.

Ended up getting two of these. Ordered one myself and got one as a birthday present from my dad. The one I ordered was rough scabbard was beat up and the hilt is loose. The other was in much better shape still obviously abused. Both sabers themselves are in good shape. That said these are the real deal. You could pay for some shiny knock off or $600+ for a brand new authentic saber. These have character and are stamped India from Atlanta Cutlery which in contracted to produce sabers for the Marine Corps.
I have always wanted one. I now having it hanging over my fireplace! It is used but it adds to the story! I haven't seen anything like this! Get them before they are gone!!!!
Most items are good values from your company, but this purchase was a mistake. Scabbard and handle in poor condition . The blade was in excellent condition, but not enough to make it worth the purchase price considering it was made in India.
I know this item is used but mine was abused!! The handle is bent, the leather grip is worn all the way through and the gold plating is almost non existent. The scabbard has numerous dents and a ton of scratches. For the price I paid it's not worth the money spent! Seeing as it's gonna be a wall hanger above my Marine Corps flag, most people won't be able to spot the tremendous wear and tear!!
