Sales enquiries

A very good levee weight British infantry officer's sword with scabbard, by Wilkinson, serial number 20481. As the Wilkinson sales ledger is still in existence, the buyer can pay a search fee (around £18) to find out the original purchaser of this sword from Wilkinson (if the entry is missing, they refund the search fee). So this is a completely un researched sword with plenty of potential.

The 32 1/2 inch blade is in very good order, patina patches to most of the blade but no pitting, and is firm in the hilt. The hilt in equally good shape, the fishskin grip and twisted wire bindings in excellent shape for the age. The steel scabbard is also in well above average condition. The sword sheathes and draws very well. Please quote reference number B85 (575). Full sized / further images available upon request.
