WW1 ARGYLL & SUTHERLAND HLDRS. - CROSS HILTED FIELD OFFICERS SWORD
Rare sword and of the pattern associated with the Argylls.
This ties in exactly with the history of the sword as it was one of 3 swords recently acquired by me as a direct veterans family purchase and the family members were ex Argylls and the other 2 swords had Argyll etched blades ( name to buyer ).
Argylls pattern hilt with fish skin grip bound with silver wire. Original red tassle present to pommel.
Acid etched blade
This is a good example of this sought-after pattern of sword. This particular example has a hilt design that is associated with the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders; it bears the Wilkinson blade No 51460 which puts its date of manufacture between 1914 and 1918.
The grip and hilt are in good order with just some slight loss of shagreen to the grip. The wiring is intact and there is only some slight loss of plating to the cross-guard and the pommel.
The blade is tarnished overall and there is some light pitting near the hilt. The etching is clear and sharp, however, and both sides of the blade are decorated with the thistles of Scotland with the GRV cypher also to one side of the blade.
The leather service scabbard is in excellent order; it is complete and undamaged and carries the ball chape that is a distinguishing feature of most Scottish sword scabbards.
WW1 HIGHLAND REGIMENTS KILT PIN
Rare item being the large size kilt pin for fastening the kilt at the waist.
Great War kilts were mostly without buckles so these large substantial pins were used for waist fastening. Not to be confused with the smaller type used on the bottom of the outside apron.
The real deal, extremely rare and in good condition.
A lot of money for what it is but try finding another.
