Marine Sword Certification Letter
Following are the two pages of certification we received from the Marine Corps Systems Command when we re-certified our Marine Officer and NCO Swords. Certifications must be renewed on a regular basis with Systems Command in order to remain certified.

[Purchase a Marine NCO Sword]
Your sword may have a different certification number compared to the ones listed in the letter above. Our previous Officer certification number was 443 and NCO number was 450. While both of those numbers expired in 2012, swords produced under those numbers prior to the expiration date are still approved for use and wear by MARCORSYSCOM. If you receive a sword with 443 or 450 on the blade, it was made to standard while covered under the previous certification number and is authorized.
