Korean War vet reunited with his sword

A Navy flyer in the Korean war is reunited with his dress sword, stolen decades ago and picked up in a pawn shop. Perhaps of interest: the pawn shop called this a "Civil War" sword, and the sword has a "proof disk", which is in fact just a motif etched in the steel.
