Sales enquiries

First Afghan War era sword. No visible maker's name; there is a tablet etched at the ricasso / forte but it is now feint.

The 32 1/8 inch blade is aged and worn but good / sound and firm in the hilt. The wide flared 3 bar guard is good but has a possibly period break and repair. The fishskin grip has missing patches; most of the twisted grip wire bindings are gone. The later painted scabbard is sound; there is an evident repair towards the drag / chape. The sword sheathes and draws loosely.

A rare sword, yours for £375. Please quote item reference P73. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0260-1m (1.642).
