WW1 era Canadian Scottish (Princess Mary's) Regiment Sergeant's Cross Hilted Sword

Sales enquiries

This is believed to be a WW1 era sword simply because it is a cross hilt, the fact the blade was period sharpened and the apparent age of the scabbard; the only markings are "CSR 8" to both the blade and cross guard of the hilt. The sword came from a large collection in Canada.

The 33 inch plain blade (except for "CSR 8" and a proof disc) is in very good condition, some light surface / superficial flecking to the blade. The blade is firm in the hilt. The fishskin grip and twisted wire grip wire bindings are in very good order. There is a "CSR 6" marking to the cross guard. The leather field scabbard is in good shape though aged a little, the suspension loop especially. The sword sheathes and draws very well. This is an issued NCO's / sergeants sword and is therefore very rare. Further / full sized images available upon request. Please quote item reference number D27 (704).
