This is a documented and a very nice example of a Scottish Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Infantry Officer Basket Hilt Broadsword that dates from the World War II Era. Murray of the G & S Highlanders according to its Wilkinson records. The lovely grooved etched blade measures 32 5/8 inches in length by 1 inch at the widest. The blade remains in extremely nice condition with only minor surface staining and continues to wear all of its gorgeous etching on either side. The basket hilt has also survived well however has some flaking to the plating with minor surface oxidation. The beautiful basket hilt liner has lost a small bit of its red covering, otherwise remains very healthy as well with the doeskin inner liner very nice and clean. The red cap tassel remains very nice and frames a wonderful fishskin covered hilt that is very healthy in its condition and with its twisted wire wrap still securely in place.
