Sales enquiries

With a Bow London Small Arms factory view (inspection) mark (crown over x over 6) to the forte, this sword is post 1866. The inspection / view mark means this sword was sold to the War Office which included the Admiralty who HM Coast Guard was transferred to in the 1850's; the view mark means this is not a police or customs sword.

The 27 inch blade is in very good condition, only a couple of small rust patches, and firm in the hilt. The brass grip and hilt / guard with some tarnish etc. but overall very good. The leather and brass fittings scabbard is in good condition though the top fitting is loose (can be re-glued). The locking pin mechanism works well. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A well above average example of a pretty rare sword. A snip at just £500. Please quote item reference number W07. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Box 1123-101x19x16 (2.034).
