Solid half-basket hilted sword
Owned by F.W. Hyde, Chief Officer, Coastguard (1858-?). The hilt consists of a solid half-basket guard, with raised bars and crown and anchor badge. The folding flap on the reverse is pierced to connect with the catch on the top locket. The guard is pierced with a slot near the pommel and there are two holes near the top of the grip through which passes the swordknot. The black fish-skin grip is bound with three copper wires. There is a stepped pommel with slightly fluted back-piece, a short upturned quillon with disc terminal and a prominent tang button.
