**NAMED**Victorian, British Pattern 1827 Rifle Brigade Officer's Sword With Etched Blade To ‘A.G. Dugdale’ Burnley Rifles (17th Lancashire Rifle Volunteers) By Gurney & Co London With Cord, Bullion Acorn Portepee & Scabbard. Sn 19825 - 19825
Originally raised as the King’s Royal Rifle Corps in 1755, the Rifle Brigade was officially formed in 1800. The Regiment was always renowned for its individuality both in uniform & tactics and its no wonder that they eventually gained their own distinctive pattern of sword. In 1860 Burnley became headquarters of 3rd Lancashire Rifle Volunteers which eventually comprised no fewer than eleven former corps including the 17th raised at Burnley 16th January 1860. The 1827 pattern is defined by gothic bar guard hilt coupled with the usual Royal Cypher with strung bugle cartouche. Most Victorian era swords are from Volunteer / Militia Units and the blades marked accordingly (see page 174 of World Swords by Withers). This is an original 1827 Pattern Officer’s Sword to A.G. Dugdale, no doubt an Officer of the Burnley Rifles & scabbard. The sword has a clean 32” blade (37" overall) with fullers. The blade is beautifully etched on both sides including the badge of the Rifle Brigade between ‘Burnley Rifles’ Queen’s crown and ‘VR’ Royal Cypher (Victoria Regina) together with foliate panels. The blade also has the ordnance acceptance star with inlaid roundel at the ricasso and an etched panel on one side ‘A.G Dugdale’ below engraved A Griffin's Head And Wings Endorsed Erminois, Gorged With A Collar Gemelle & Charged On The Neck With A Cross (the family crest of the North of England Dugdale family. The surname of DUGDALE was a locational name 'of Dugdale' some small dale on the borders of Lancashire and Yorkshire). The ricasso is also etched by the manufacturer / retailer ‘Gurney & Co St James London’. It has a brass gothic bar knuckle guard with the Rifle Brigade 'Crown with bugle' badge and curved stepped pommel. The fish skin grip is excellent, the grip’s wire binding is all present but frayed in small areas. The guard is fitted with bullion cord and portepee. It is complete with brass scabbard with 2 hanging rings and shoe. The scabbard is undamaged apart from a few small dents consistent with service carry. The price for this sword & scabbard which is worthy of further research regarding the named Officer includes UK delivery. Sn 19825

Post WW2 M53 (Nazi German MG42 Variant) Machine Gun & Bi Pod With Ammo Belt & Inert Rounds & Sling**2007 UK DEACTIVATION WITH 2022 ISSUED REPLACEMENT UK DEACTIVATION CERTIFICATE**Sn 19759 - 19759
The MG 42 (Maschinengewehr 42, or Machine Gun 42) general purpose machine gun was used extensively by the German Army & Axis forces in WW2. Post WW2 Yugoslavia license-built the MG 42 at the state-owned Zavodi Crvena Zastava company as the M53 machine gun, retaining the 7.92×57mm Mauser calibre. By doing so, the Yugoslavians retained the original weapon's design features, making the M53 a nearly exact copy of the German MG 42. This is an excellent original example of the Yugoslavian M53. It has all original metal work, wood stock and ribbed pistol grip. It is serial number C17820 and has other un-matching numbers. It is complete with original bi pod and flip up sights. The frame is crisply marked with Yugoslavian & numerous script and numbers. It is fitted with leather sling. The weapon is deactivated to UK 2007 specification and it cocks and dry fires, also the breech cover can be lifted for loading. The original 2007 deactivation certificate has been lost at some point in its life, resulting in a replacement UK deactivation certificate being issued in 2022 (the re-issue did not require any alteration to the gun’s 2007 deactivation work and it remains able to cock & dry fire & the breech cover still opens for loading). The weapon is complete with a partial ammo belt and a quantity of inert deactivated rounds which can be seen in the images. The price includes deactivation certificate & UK delivery**We can arrange for this firearm to be brought up to the latest UK/EU specification for UK customers (customers can purchase on our lay-away scheme. The weapon will then be brought up to the EU specification and the relevant certificate obtained prior to the transfer of ownership and delivery)**Sn 19759
