RARE, American Civil War Era Model 1840 Mounted Light Artillery Trooper’s Sword & Scabbard. Sn 14894:23 - 14894:23
The design of these swords was based on the French Model 1829 Artillery Trooper’s sword (see page 211 of World Swords by Withers). These swords are rare as they were produced in far fewer numbers than the infantry and cavalry due to the relatively smaller size of the artillery Regiments. This sword was probably manufactured in either France or Germany and imported into North America during the early part of the Civil War when the home nations could not produce enough swords for their own troops. This is a very good, original example of the Model 1840 sword complete with original scabbard. It has the correct 31 ¾” long curved and fullered sabre blade and it is 37 ½” overall. The blade has some small nicks only visible on close inspection and areas of staining but no rust all consistent with age and service use. The sword does not have any visible manufacturer, date, or inspection marks. It has the correct plain brass knuckle guard & brass pommel cap. Its leather bound wood grip is undamaged and has its original brass wire binding which is intact and tight. The sword is complete with its original steel scabbard with 2 original hanging rings and small shoe. The scabbard has some small dents consistent with age and use. The price for this rare American Civil war collector’s piece includes UK delivery. Sn 14894:23

Magnificent 'Twenty Fifth Anniversary of the Channel Isalnds Liberation' 43" Sword, Mounted For Display, Limited Edition LR 99 Commemorative Piece By Wilkinson Sword. Sn 13548 - 13548
A limited edition (LR 99) made by Wilkinson Sword craftsmen to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Cannel Islands Liberation 1945-1970. The Channel Islands were occupied during World War II by German forces from 30 June 1940, until May 1945. They were liberated by British forces following the general German surrender. Considered not defendable by the British government in 1940, the islands were demilitarised and some civilians were given the opportunity to evacuate to England before the German forces arrived. The island leaders and some civil servants were asked to stay in their posts to look after the civilians in their care. 41,101 remained on Jersey, 24,429 on Guernsey and 470 on Sark. Alderney had just 18. Apart from undertaking a few commando raids, the islands were ignored by the British government until June 1944 when additional attacks on German shipping and radar units took place. To avoid starvation of civilians, permission was given for Red Cross parcels to be sent to the islands during the winter of 1944-45. Liberation would have to wait until the end of the war in Europe. The sword has a double edge plated steel blade, acid etched with a commemorative inscription "Twenty Fifth Anniversary of the Channel Islands Liberation 1945-1970". On the reverse it is stamped with 'LR 99', being part of a limited edition sword. It has a gilt metal crossguard, pommel and langet which bears the Guernsey and Jersey arms. It has a very nice wire bound green leather grip. The blade measures 33 1/2"long. It is mounted beautifully on a large polished mahogany plaque which is drilled for wall mounting and measures 9" x 46". The price includes UK delivery. Sn 13548 ****(see the other sword in stock Sn 13549)***
