1895 Pattern Scottish Infantry Sergeant’s
1895 Pattern Elizabeth 2nd Scottish Infantry Sergeant’s
Broadsword by Wilkinson with hilt liner, ribbon and tassle complete.
Spectacular looking and very rare Scottish Infantry Sergeant's
basket hilted broadsword by Wilkinson with serial number 102707
dating it to 1974. This parade ground condition sword is rare because
it was issued to the British MOD (Ministry of Defence), complete
with NATO serial number on spine, and very few of these get decommissioned
in such good condition. The 81.5 cm blade has been replated at some
stage during its service life but the etching is still very good
and clear. The scabbard has a few dings but nothing to speak of.
The grip inside the basket hilt is a little loose but not seriously
so. The basket hilt lining is probably a replacement but that is
a good thing as very few swords are able to compete with this one's
impressive looks. Further pictures available upon request. Item
reference number 137 (43)
