Sales enquiries

Sword came from a deceased's attic in the UK, so likely has been around long enough to be a British capture from the conflict / War of 1812 with the United States.

The 27 1/2 inch blade has a steady patina throughout; there is just a tiny amount of very feint prior etching on one side (too feint to photo). THe blade, hilt and grip all have some movement but not a great amount. The back piece and grip have a gap unless squeezed. The hilt other wise is very good with all important fouled anchor langets and eagle head pommel. The horn grip is exquisitely well formed with only tiny losses.

One of the few battle trophies ever taken off the US Navy; yours for £1000. Please quote item reference AE80. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 1009-102x30x14 (1.594).
