Sales enquiries

No maker's name but very well etched. Not quite parade ground condition but it possibly could be with a little TLC. The badge is for the combined Queen's Own Highlanders (Seaforth and Camerons) (post 1961) but we bought it from the original owner / officer who stated he served with the Seaforth Higlanders.

The 32 inch blade in good condition, the grey etch still very good, some wear / scabbard scuffing, some brown light spotting around the point end of the etch, firm in the hilt. The hilt generally very good with a slight light age speckling (a good metal finishing polish such as Simichrome would probably work well). Faux fishskin grip in overall good condition, the twisted grip wire bindings good. The scarlet tassel in good order, the guard liner a little aged with the Royal Blue edgings a bit faded. The plated steel scabbard in good shape, some light speckling (again, some TLC with a metal finishing cream would probably improve). The sword sheathes and draws well, if a little tightly.

Just find another! A very nice sword for only £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference P78 (0255). Further / full sized images available upon request.
