Sales enquiries

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).
