ERII Scottish Highland Infantry Officer's
Basket Hilted Sword, Sold
In very good condition, a stunning ERII Scottish Highland Infantry
Officer's Basket Hilt by Wilkinson Sword; serial number 116602 for
Very good condition; the potential for almost new condition. This
sword could use some metal finishing polish such as Simichrome to
bring it into absolute ceremonial dress condition, ideal for a serving
highland infantry officer. There is some slight bending to one of
the back bars, but not really noticeable. Other than that, this
sword could easily be restored with a little basic careful TLC to
almost as new condition.
32 1/4 Inch blade in very good condition and firm in the hilt.
The hilt with some aging, mostly tarnishing, a little (literally)
spot of corrosion at the base of the basket. The grip in very good
condition. The royal blue and scarlet red liner plus tassel in very
good condition. The plated steel scabbard with some aging commensurate
with the hilt. If you were to remove the basket liner and then use
a good metal finishing polish, the hilt and scabbard would come
up to new / near new condition. The sword sheathes and draws well.
A rare chance to get a legendary Wilkinson for only £? (too
late, now sold). Please quote item reference number AA51 (0038).
