Default Philippine First Republic Sword To Share

I found this sword and thought that it might be interesting to have it added to our pool of Philippine weapons.

Lovely old sword Drac. The scabbard is in good condition too, with the triangle, stars, and sun motifs all clearly shown. Good pick up. Where did you find this one?

Thanks. The internet has gotten so competitive that lately, I've gotten off my lazy can and started to physically search about the area.
