1798P Napoleonic Highland Scottish Infantry
Officer's Sword, for sale
In overall good refurbished condition, a rare 1798P Napoleonic
Highland Scottish Infantry Officer's Sword.
This sword has been refurbished. It has a replacement grip and
the broken bars of the inherently fragile brass hilt have been welded
back (there is one bar missing also). These swords were renowned
for their weak hilts, and it is very unlikely to find one that was
active in the Napoleonic wars which is undamaged.
The 33 inch blade is in good condition, though has been "cleaned"
so that much of the patina has been removed to show the raw steel.
Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt has repaired breaks and a back
bar missing. The replacement leather grip and twisted grip wire
bindings are good.
A good example of this highly collectible sword. A good investment
at only £1000. Please quote item reference AB74. Further /
full sized images available upon request. Box 0125-1.18 (2.53)
