Solid half-basket hilted sword
Hilt consists of a gilt brass solid half-basket guard which is larger than normal but otherwise of regulation pattern. It has a lion's-head pommel with mane extending half-way down the back-piece, and a white fish-skin grip bound with copper wire. The blade is straight and of rectangular or dumb-bell section. The scabbard is missing. There is an inscription on the blade: 'PATENT SOLID HILT'. This sword is part of the Spinney Collection (OP240) which comprises sixteen swords, five dirks and three pistols - AAA3114 (pair) and AAA3115.
