Victorian Scottish Highland Infantry Officer's Broadsword

Sales enquiries

No maker's name, but 100% authentic guaranteed (has correct brass proof disc / slug) and fishskin grip (reproductions have pigskin leather grips and incorrect proof slugs). The lack of a maker's / retailer's name normally means the officer / buyer did not want to pay the extra to have one etched onto his sword.

The 31 1/4 inch blade is in good condition, well etched, and is firm in the hilt. The hilt good, the flattened bars indicating circa 1880 to 1900 manufacture (Boer War era). The fishskin grip in good condition but has lost its grip wire (a relatively easy home replacement job for someone). No scabbard, but these can often be found sold separately.

Nice sword for just £(sales pricing available for a small fee). Please quote item reference O18 (1350). Further / full sized images upon request.
