This is a fabulous example of a Scottish Black Watch Royal Highlanders Officer Broadsword by Wilkinson that dons the Cypher of King George the Fifth. It is mounted with a large, impressively etched Henry Wilkinson blade that measures 32 3/8 inches in length. The blade has survived in superb original condition and is beautifully etched in the thistle pattern on either side as well as wears the serial number 58987 along the spine. The gorgeous half basket hilt is adorned with The Black Watch emblem and continues to wear its lovely red felt and blue fabric liner that accentuates the beautifully pierced metal work and the inside doe skin liner remains healthy and clean. The fishskin covered hilt also remains in very healthy condition and with its original twisted wire wrap still tightly in place. This Broadsword is mounted with its leather covered combat scabbard which remains very healthy as well reflecting only very minimal wear. Overall measuring 40 5/8 inches in length.
