Sales enquiries

A full length (35 1/2 inch) bladed 1834P Second Life Guard officer's sword marked to "Hawkes & Co London Manufacturers to the Queen". The blade period sharpened and still very sharp to this day; that is how good a condition the blade is in. This is a very difficult sword to source.

The blade is exceptional and firm in the hilt of course. The brass hilt in very good condition save for some minor scraping to one bar. The black fishskin grip and triple twisted grip wire bindings are all present and correct. The steel scabbard with gilt fittings is in good order, several patina spots; these could be polished off if required. The sword sheathes and draws well. Please quote item reference number C77 (679).
