Title Infantry officer's sword
Nationality British
Period c 1760
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

Nice example of a three-quarter basket hilt of French and Indian War vintage, also used in the American Revolutionary War. Iron hilt with serpent-head engraving at various junction points on the guard and to the counter guard terminals. Fine ray skin grip with original wire binding. Nice, clean blade with no obvious defects.

There is minor patination to the whole of the iron guard, with the exception of the pommel.

The 3 medals have just arrived safely - very interesting. (From your description I was expecting ribbon to be dreadful; personally, I think that the "Russian Front" is beautifully 'aged'.)
