The 32 1/2 inch blade has been replated but the etching can still be seen; it has some wobble / bending but not too much. Blade firm in hilt. The hilt with some plating bubbles and rust spots. The fishskin grip in good condition; the twisted grip wire has some losses. The leather field service scabbard is very worn and aged, has a kink in it, but is sound. The sword sheathes and draws well enough, if a little tightly.

Rare sword, named officer, plenty of research potential. All yours for £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference AD97 (0628). Further / full sized images available upon request.
