    Hi Mark,
    I know that Henry Wilkinson sometimes marked blades with 'Made in England' instead of a number in the same place, but have yet to see one with 'London Made'.

    Hi Matt,
    Not an easy one... the latter looks more like the scrawl in the ledger, but is difficult to fit with the characteristics of the sword..

    a) The crest is showing a head that is ‘erased’; therefore...

    Hi Matt,

    Many thanks for the update. With the additional info you very well could be right... Perhaps I should have used the Scots term 'for aught yet seen' in making a conclusion.
