    For sale: Yeoman Warders/Tower Hanger sword c.1727

    I offer for sale a very rare, Yeoman Warder's sword or 'Tower Hanger', issued to the Yeoman Warders of the Guard ("Beefeaters") and British Grenadiers around circa 1727, when King George II inherited the throne of England. These hangers rarely come up for sale on the market, get this one whilst you can!

    The 30 inch long blade is in wonderful condition for it's years, having a diamond cross-section and a distal taper to it, making it a fast sword to wield with a strong blade. The blade has taken on a slightly dark appearance, but is free of rust or damage and has a sharp 'service edge' to both sides. It has a tiny amount of movement in the hilt, almost un-noticeable.

    The hilt consists of a cast brass shell guard, depicting in raised relief the prancing 'Horse of Hanover', a typical symbol of the Hanoverian kingship. Midway along the shell-guard a side branch emerges joining the stirrup shaped knuckle-guard. Towards the top of the knuckle-guard a lateral swirling guard bar emerges to join the root of the guard (so protecting the thumb).

    This is a very rare sword that rarely comes to market, and it needs a new home. I offer free postage worldwide to the buyer

    I could drop down to 750 plus free postage worldwide, if that would tempt anyone? The rate of exchange for the Pound Sterling is at it's lowest for 15 years currently. An excellent time to buy for anyone overseas.
