    Wilkinson proof page is blank? All I can think of is a chicken joke just now. At least you have a star rooster.

    Heath family crest is similar with rooster and stars

    Good luck with the ledger, it should have a name recorded since the sword does have a family crest.

    James you have to take it all off of her and show a full frontal photo of the sword.

    I have this cutlass, # 14. Not sure where this numbering fits in the history, whether one of the early batch of 600 or not?
  8. 1770's Revolutionary Cavalry Sword by Wyatt

    I am selling my Wyatt slotted hilt sword with 35 1/2" blade. I have posted the sword in the past here. $6250 incl. shipping.

    The staple is a correct attachment method that was used on bayonet scabbards from the mid 1800's. Note the scabbard mouth has been removed to fit the blade dimension.
    The locket button/hook also is...

    With new props made to be safe I suppose these old swords owned by costume companies have been sold off.
    Would it not be a great treasure hunt to find an old cache of edged weapons?

    Simon both are excellent though I lean towards the naval sword, fantastic silver slotted hilt. Can we see the blade?

    Ben I'm glad you saw the painting. I find period illustrations accurate compared to later ones though they may be old but do not date to the time depicted.

    Odd that the grinding marks on the blade next to the tang were not removed. It would be interesting to see how the tang is attached to the blade. Most likely a broken blade repurposed into a...

    Dirk these early swords were used and original wire is mostly found on pristine examples that may not have been in battle or used for anything but parading.

    Grip wire on swords that were used and of great age tend to show a good deal of loss. Sometimes the wire under the pommel remains. The second photo demonstrates replaced wire.

    I would think you would have to authenticate the grip wire on the swords in these photos. Leather and wood shrinks with age, wire does not, and the wire looks tight to the grips.
    Difficult to...
  17. With some grip covering loss the wire is too snug...

    With some grip covering loss the wire is too snug to the grip to be original and I believe it's wire added at a much later date. Typically the French used double stranded twisted wire.
  18. I believe the wire could be a later replacement.

    I believe the wire could be a later replacement.
  19. This sword is not a Henry Wilkinson sword....

    This sword is not a Henry Wilkinson sword. Interesting there is no proof disc but a "W" is etched in its place. I would date the sword between 1850-1854+- due to the folding guard and Wilkinson type...

    Max I don't believe Horster and other Solingen makers sold just blades in the 20th century though they did much earlier. What makes you think this could be the case?
    The blade should also have a...

    I've seen Horster 1897p swords used in the Canadian Army, as officers rarely purchase their own swords these days the swords are issued out for parades etc.
