Description

Outstanding example of the hewer worn by NCO Cadre of the RAD - the Labor Corps.  Exterior shows nickel plated fittings that show even, minor age throughout but no damage.  Some minor finish loss on the reverse to the upper scabbard fitting - probably due to period wear against a uniform.  Paint shows crazing, and a few uniform areas of paint loss, but paint is 95% present and in great condition.  Blade shows some sharpening on the edge, and some minor runner-mark corrosion.  Present is the early brown leather hanger, in outstanding condition - these were usually broken during the period due to their inherent fragility.
