The 31 3/8 inch blade has a steady patina and some inert pitting but is in sound to good order and firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard has patina and a little inert pitting but is good. The ebony / ebonized wood grip is in very good condition, just a couple of cracks under the pommel. Grip wire still present and good; incredible! The steel field service scabbard has a rust hole towards the chape / drag but is overall sound. The sword sheathes and draws quite well.

A well above average example of a scarce circa 240 year old sword. A good deal at only £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number V47 (0996). Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Box 0996-101x19x17 (1.620).
