A superb and unique Scottish 1827 Pattern Presentation Lanarkshire Rifles Officer’s Sword. This sword is in terrific condition and has a completely mint blade and features a very finely etched blade comprising a presentation panel that reads: “Presented to Lieut. W M Scott 50th Lanarkshire (Press) Rifle Corps by Numerous Friends and as a Mark of Respect Glasgow 24th March 1860.” The sword is of typical 1827 Pattern Rifle Officer’s type and includes a plated hilt and scabbard – all original. The grip is covered in fishskin and silver twistwire – one small piece missing to top. The owner of the sword was a local author and the sword comes complete with a copy of his novel, The Red Rose A Tale of Upper Clydesdale. The book is inscribed by the author to his daughter, Agnes and dated 1879. Cannot really fault this sword and nice to have some personal history aswell. Blade length is 32.5 inches (38 inches overall).
