WW2 / George 6th Scottish Basket Hilted Claymore
A good WW2 era / George 6th Scottish infantry officer's basket-hilted
claymore bladed broadsword.
Authentic Scottish swords like this are becoming increasingly difficult
to source, which makes them one of the better antique / collectible
This George 6th basket hilt has a 32.5 inch blade, well etched
with royal cypher, thistles, etc. and firm in the hilt. The nickel
plated hilt with some rust spots but overall sound and in good order.
The fishskin grip and twisted wire grip bindings are good, the lower
ferule a little loose but nothing at all serious as it is only for
decoration. The calfskin liner intact though aged, the crimson outer
in good shape, the blue edgings have nearly gone black. Complete
with leather field service scabbard in good overall condition. Further
/ full sized images upon request. My reference number is 715.
