Sales enquiries

Fullered blade with folding guard = 1845 pattern. This example bears the retailer's details "Hopkinson 64 Pall Mall London". The sword has been later rotary sharpened on one side but within the so called sharpening ridge along the edge so, with some care and a sharpening wet stone should improve significantly. The steel scabbard has seen the test of time (probably in an attic) but has protected the blade well.

The 32 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition except for sharpening on side, and firm in the hilt. The brass hilt is very good for age, very little warping / deviation (unlike most gothic hilts). Grip very good, as are the grip bindings. Steel scabbard has patina and pitting. Sword sheathes and draws well. Folding guard section of guard works well.

A nice example with scope to improve; yours for £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference S74 (0692). Further / full sized images available upon request.
