KGVI Era Scottish Officers Broadsword

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I've been entrusted with selling this sword. It is in mint condition (hasn't been used on any champagne) with the original scabbard, basket lining and tassel.
    Any suggestions for a price I should ask for?
     
  2. Which sword? What regiment?
     
  3. Can you supply a picture? What was the maker?
    Leather scabbard or nickle?
     
  4. Have a look on ebay - there's a few there under 'Militaria'.
     
  5. I would approach the major auctioneers who deal with arms & militaria, if you find a specialised sale you are more likely to find better buyers.

    I'll find a few and get back to you.

    .:M-F:.
     
  6. Selling your sword just isnt right. Theres more to a sword than 38oz of steel and a price tag.

    Or am I just being over-sentimental?
     
  7. Not marked with a specific regiment, but last used by KOSB officers. Pictures to follow.

    p.s. I'm one of those weird non-combatant types who don't carry swords...
     
  8. In a previous post you said you were RAMC. In which case you can carry a sword, you just don't draw it.
     
  9. SillySubby: What have you decided vis-a-vis your sword? Have you placed a price on it? Are you still planning to post photos?
