Try to set up a more detailed picture.
Unfortunately from this kind of photography, is difficult to make an estimate.

I agree with Vex. It is very hard to tell from these pictures but from what little I can see it think it's probably OK.

It looks good from what can be seen in the pictures IMHO. The condition of the blade is everything. It's really hard to see any possible condition issues from these bad pictures.

Looks like original AC IMO.
But I would still like to see additional pictures.

I agree, a good basic Alcoso with generic style scabbard
as used by this maker at times.

The mark looks as if it may be OK, but the pictures are not really good enough to comment.

Initial agreement that it is good but waiting for better pics to render full acceptance.
