Sold Item Notice

It is so very rare to find these swords in such very good condition. This one looks brand new from a distance, though it is an antique, around 100 years old or more, made during the realm of King Edward 7th.

With an all weather bag which partly explains why it is in such good order, the bag marked inside to the original owner, J H Porter of the 6th battalion of the North Staffordshire Regiment, Burton on Trent. An excellent opportunity exists to do some research on the man of course.
