Sales enquiries

The ricasso has been period engraved "Col E Wilson 3bt A & S H" for the 3rd battalion of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. There is no maker's or retailer's name to the ricasso, but this is a very high quality sword, so the original owner probably declined this.

The 32 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt good but with age. The fishskin grip in very good condition save for a tiny patch loss. Twisted grip wire also good. The field service leather scabbard is good but aged and has lost its chape. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A very nice, well above average example. A snip at just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number W69 (1193). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
