The 29 inch blade has patina and rust pitting, but the etching which goes way down both sides of the blade is still visible, sometimes clear; Etching includes cutler's details, fouled anchor, military symbols, "Warranted", etc. Hilt in very good shape for the age, some gilt remaining. Grip clean and in good condition for its age. Folding guard section of hilt works well. Scabbard leather fallen apart, taped up only to keep together. Basically, if you have a leather worker make you a new scabbard with the existing fittings, you will double the value of this sword.

I don't believe it, a good Georgian pipe back RN officer's sword for only £???. Please quote item reference number N06 (1286). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
