1850 Pattern Royal Scots Warrant Officer's Sword

Sales enquiries

An exceptionally rare sword, not in the greatest of condition; nicks (most likely later) to the cutting edge of the 32 1/2 inch plain blade blade (some pitting), the maker's name etching (Hawkes & Co of London) now very feint, the hilt a little loose, though retaining some original gilt. The black fishskin grip is very sound though has lost much of its black sheen, the original single thick brass wire binding still present and correct.

This is one of those swords that most collectors do not have; very few exist and not many of those are in good condition. So, if you want one of these Royal Scots pattern swords, you better grab it quick, as it may be many, many years if ever another comes along. In that respect, a great investment. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Please quote item reference number D43 (739)
