K of C or Knights of Columbus Sword & Scabbard

A Knights of Columbus sword with scabbard in fine condition with exc. unsharpened straight double edged blade and cast German silver mounts. Marked "Lynch & Kelly, Utica, NY" on ricasso, the blade is acid etched with motifs on both sides and in script "Knights of Columbus", about half remains of the gold wash. The metal scabbard is nickeled, and has some brown patina with dark spots of pebbling also, German silver fittings. The japanned wood grip shows wear spots. The head is adjustable enough to face in either direction, you choose which is proper. This sword dealer was in business from around 1875 and production was into the mid twentieth century. The time period of this sword appears to be from the 1940's or '50's. This has seen use but will make a fine overall example of a nice clean, early sword.
