Fine French Model 1905 NCO’s Sword and Scabbard
A good example of a French Model 1905 NCO’s Sword and Scabbard. With finely crafted brass hilt and grip bound with brass twistwire. Foward hilt guard with inset victory laurel wreath. Blade is interesting in that it has been deeply impressed to the spine with the name GILL – not sure as to the significance of this as there was an English sword maker of the early 1800’s with that name although this sword is later. Sword blade is unsharpened indicating that this was likely to be a parade sword – by this stage of the 20th Century, swords of this type would not have been used in anger or on the battlefield. Complete with original brass and leather mounted scabbard.
Condition of the Sword
In very good condition throughout – blade very clean.
Specifications of the Sword
Blade length is 31 inches (37 inc hes overall).
