WW1 era Canadian Scottish Regiment Sergeant's
Cross Hilt Sword, sold
In very good condition,a rare Canadian Scottish Regiment sergeant's
cross hilted sword, complete with scabbard.
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).
