A nice example of a George VI Scottish baskethilt broadsword. This is a model which saw little change since its inception in 1828, sporting a massive basket with a solid full tang blade.
The basket liner is in excellent shape, while the ribbons connecting it to the basket have likely been replaced at some point. The sharkskin grip is solid and in perfect shape. The scabbard is in fine shape, but probably has a replacement mouth.
The blade is in great shape, with a minimal patina. No makers mark. It is etched with the George VI cipher, situating it in the WW2 era. Even though this is a later iteration of this classic sword, it retains a lot of the practicality of an earlier one and could still be used for combat.
