Super Rare Scottish 19th Century Royal Scots Fusiliers Officer's Sword For Sale

Super Rare Scottish 19th Century Royal Scots Fusiliers Officer's Sword

An extremely rare British sword. This type of sword was only carried by the Royal Scots Fusiliers and only for a very limited amount of time. According to Robson (Swords of the British Army, page 182), it was carried from the 1860's through to 1881 when the regiment adopted the basket hilt. Interestingly, this example has the early 1822 Pattern pipe back blade and I would guess that it actually pre-dates the 1860's so it is possible that the regiment were carrying these swords earlier than first thought. The hilt is very distinctive and comprises an inset regimental device, the number "21" and the regimental motto, Nemo meimune lacessit. The pommel and backstrap are heavily decorated with thistles. The grip is wrapped with fishskin and bound with steel twistwire. The pipe back blade has the remains of an engraved regimental scroll and flaming grenade motif. The sword comes complete with its original brass and leather mounted scabbard. Despite its condition this is a very rare and seldom seen sword and only a handful would have survived. In generally fair condition - some loss of fishskin to the grip and blade is worn in places. Blade length is 33 inches (38 inches overall).
