This is what an NCO often carried the cute little NCO in when not wearing an NCO belt. Some dealers call these balderics. It was worn over the shoulder and the sword fit in the belt loop worn on the left side. It is black leather with the proper eagle plate in the middle to adjust the length with a standing loop, as per the original. Some use evident, but not abused. I would like $55.00 for it, postage paid.
