George VI Kings Own Scottish Borderers Cross
Hilt Sword, sold
In very good condition, a rare George 6th (WW2 era) Kings Own
Scottish Borderers officer's cross hilted broadsword.
Etched at the ricasso to William Anderson & Sons Ltd of 14
George Street Edinburgh (1910-1956), the blade with the emblem and
name of the Kings Own Scottish Borderers and the royal cypher of
King George VI (reigned from 11th December 1936 to 14th August 1947).
The 33 inch blade blade is in very good condition, some light surface
rust which would probably clean off quite well, and is firm in the
hilt. The hilt in good condition, the fishskin grip having lost
some of its blackening, easily replaced if desired with some black
shoe polish. The field leather scabbard is in good condition, some
scuffs, the frog suspension loop aged and cracking as you should
expect. But, overall, a well above average example of this sought
A true investment. Full sized / additional photos available upon
request. Please quote item reference number E79 (837).
