British Hanger/Short Sword for the Chelmsford Night Watch, 1799

D-Guard brass type handle is covered with shark skin, unfortunately the wire wrap has long been missing. The blade is actually in very fine condition with the exception of few areas of some very light old pitting. Nice markings on the blade read GILLS WARRANTED 1799 on one side and CHELMSFORD NIGHT WATCH on the other side. Overall length measures 27 ½ inches, blade alone 22 ¼ inches.
