    Largest selection of genuine antique weapons for sale in UK. See our website andrewbottomley.com. Ref 9946. An extremely interesting British officers sword with an inscription that we believe to be from the American Civil war ! The 31 inch double edged blade with a central fuller to each side. The gilt brass hilt with double shell guard and a silver wire bound grip. Complete with its original steel scabbard with 2 carrying rings. The scabbard engraved within a panel "PRESENTED TO LIEUT J. W. LIBBY BY THE OFFICERS OF E. Co. 1865." The sword in very good condition. This sword would have originally been carried by a British officer during the period Circa 1800 - 1830, however the inscription is 30 years later and is dated 1865! We have searched this name in records on the Internet and found a J. W. LIBBY who was in E. co of a sharpshooters regiment in the United States during the Civil War. How it came to be so engraved on a British sword we have no idea. Overall length 38 inches. A rare and very interesting sword in super condition that certainly needs further research. Ref 9946. If you wish to purchase this item please visit our website andrewbottomley.com where you can pay by credit/debit card or bank transfer at not extra charge. Established 1968.
