Sales enquiries

The solid guard means this is a 1786 pattern British infantry officer's sword but with an over sized pommel, plain blade, maker "Gill" stamp to the spine and "10/00" engraved to the scabbard means this is a rare sergeant's version. The field steel scabbard means this sword was made for active service.





The 31 1/2 inch period sharpened blade is in generally good condition but for a couple of minor nicks to the cutting edge. Blade firm in the hilt. The brass hilt in very good condition for its age. The faux twisted wire grip (actually a sheath / band of tooled copper metal) is in good condition. The steel scabbard with a ding and patina / light rust in good condition for age. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A rare sword in outstanding condition for its age and type; a snitch at £650. Please quote item reference U44. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0865-121x18x17 (2.155).
