Brain-Teaser 506

From The Sunday Times, 21st February 1971 [link]

Students of the “Necronomicon” will be pleased to learn that sheet 73-74, missing from the copy at Miskatonic University, has come to light in the manuscript recently bought by the British Museum. On it the mad Arab, Abdul al Hazrad, has written:

“Cthulhu na fa’t’agn!

To fashion the sword of Nyarlathotep, take of fair metals for the hilt and the guard and the blade, enough.

The hilt shall be copper, unless the guard be silver in which case the blade shall be copper unless the hilt is gold.

The guard shall be copper unless the blade be gold in which case the guard shall be silver unless the hilt is silver.

The blade shall be gold unless the guard be gold in which case the blade shall be silver unless the hilt is copper.

Fashion then the sword of Nyarlathotep.”

Thus: Hilt = ?, Guard = ?, Blade = ?
