As shown, not so gaudily ornate as even the lowest-degree Masonic swords I looked at, while researching it prior to listing.
It is what you see in the pictures I posted...nasty cancerous-looking rusty scab near the terminal whatchamacallit on the backside.
of the (obviously) nickel-plated steel scabbard might be scraped, ground & polished carefully to avoid creating an unforgivable
hole in the metal, but I wouldn't bet on it. Many tiny brown spots all over every surface from greasy-fingered handling...too There's basically nothing on the web about the old "Knights of St. Vincent" fraternal organization. It's obviously not the same
as the Catholic "St. Vincent DePaul" charity What's with the upside-down cross on the stag horn handle? It will be right-side up only when the sword is brandished out of
its scabbard, flailing the sky, or some motion like that, eh? Were the Knights of St. Vincent a benevolent secret society, or a more
sinister outfit like another secret society, whose members might burn a wooden-framed town, just to make sure the brick yards
would be profitable in the future? Maybe the Knights of St. Vincent planned to take on the Masons...I dunno... Who will wield this rather flimsy good-for-stabbing sword in the "final battle?" Thanks for looking & good luck with your offer!
