Just to let you know the sword arrived today. Great condition, really chuffed with it. Many thanks.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.
By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
