Sold Item Notice

Further pictures available upon request. Marked to the Rutland Militia, this rare sword comes complete with the remnants of its old sword knot. Markings to the hilt like this were not standard and as the Rutland Militia was formed in 1759 and a new pattern came out in 1751, this sword is almost certainly a "hand me down" from a regular British infantry unit and likely it saw service therefore in the 7 Year War which left Britain as the dominant imperial power in North America, and the only European power east of the Mississippi. Blade marked with / to famous sword maker SH (Samuel Harvey) with his running fox trademark. The blade is 70 cm long and very firm in the hilt; the blade has a feint jagged line across it which may be natural patination, a stress mark or even a very well repaired break. My item reference number is 154 (21)
