Sword, solid half-basket hilt
Solid half-basket hilted sword, the hilt of the sword consists of gilt solid half-basket guard with raised bars and a crown and anchor badge. There is a hinged flap on the inside of the guard to engage on the stud on the top locket. The sword has a fluted pommel. The black fish-skin grip is bound with three gilt wires. The slightly curved, flat-backed Wilkinson steel blade has a groove extending to within 241mm of the double-edged spear point. The obverse of the blade is engraved on the shoulder with a proof mark, and is decorated with a rayed crown over a foul anchor motif, with further decoration above and below.
