Sold Item Notice

A stunning near flawless Wilkinson made Scottish infantry officer's broadsword, made in 1982 (serial number 113237). The only imperfections I can see are a small amount of rust where the blade joins the hilt (pretty much hidden by the scabbard buffer) and the hilt metalwork needs cleaning / shining in places, but it will come up nicely with care.

The 32.5 inch blade is in pristine condition otherwise and firm in the hilt. The (synthetic) fishskin grip, etc. are in very good order, as are the crimson tassel, blue ribbon edging and hilt liner. A beautiful sword and in parade ground condition overall. Please do not ask; there is no scabbard and I do not have a scabbard for it. If you want a scabbard the best option is to buy one from Pooley Swords in Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex, England. If you / I send them this sword, they will make sure one fits perfectly. They charge £264.00 for a nickel plated scabbard and £216.00 for a leather and steel scabbard (prices correct March 2011 and include sales tax).
