Krag Type III Scabbard Finish?

Recommended Posts

What was the finish on a Type III scabbard? The one I picked up is black paint and rust but I don't think either is correct. Question number two, "restore" or leave it?

Depends on what you want it for. I have one of the Cadet Krags with screws instead of rivets for the wood grips and the scabbard painted black. If you want one as a Cadet piece, then leave it alone. If you are looking for a scabbard and bayonet to display with a Krag rifle, then clean it up.
