Victorian 1856 Pattern British Royal Navy
Midshipman's Dirk, sold
A rare 1856P dirk for a British Royal Navy Midshipman.
In good general order, a rare 1856P British Royal Midshipman's
dirk. The 15 inch blade is sound with the etching still evident;
VR cypher and maker's name "Guy & Eames Portsmouth"
one side, fouled anchor the other. The blade is firm in the hilt,
the cross guard has a little movement, the locking pin does move
but not much, the fishskin grip is sound but aged and grubby, the
grip wire bindings are a little stray (could easily be reset into
position in our opinion).
A great chance to acquire a very rare item for. Full sized images
upon request. Please quote item reference number D56 (835).
