I MUST HAVE AT LEAST ONE FROM THIS MOST HISTORIC AND BRUTAL BATTLE. THE FIRST SOLD ON IN MARCH FOR $5500. THIS ALL ORIGINAL PIECE WAS ALSO A COCK BECK RIVER FINDIN TOWTON. THE BATTLE OF TOWTON TOOK PLACE ON MARCH 29, 1461 AS PART OF THE WAR OF THE ROSES. THIS WAR WAS FOUGHT BETWEEN THE HOUSE OF YORK AND THE HOUSE OF LANCASTER AND WAS THE LARGEST AND BLOODIEST BATTLE EVER FOUGHT ON ENGLISH SOIL !!! OUT OF THE APPROXIMATELY 50,000 SOLDIERS WHO FOUGHT THAT DAY, 28,000 DIED ON THE BATTLEFIELD...
THIS DAGGER HAS A NICE, THIN WIRE WRAPPED GRIP, ENDING IN A TURKS HEAD KNOT AT THE TOP OF THE GRIP. THE QUILLONS OR GUARD HAVE UP-TURNED KNOBS AT THE ENDS AND THE POMMEL HAS A UNIQUE DECORATIVE DESIGN. THE TRIANGULAR BLADE SHOWS AGE, BUT IS VERY STABLE AND STURDY. TOTAL LENGTH IS 17" ( 430 mm ) AND BLADE LENGTH IS 12.5" ( 320 mm ).

A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO OWN A PIECE OF MEDIEVAL ENGLISH HISTORY FROM THE WAR OF THE ROSES. THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT HAVING A DAGGER FROM THE BLOODIEST BATTLE EVER FOUGHT ON ENGLISH SOIL, BUT MUST PART WITH THIS SECOND ONE, ALSO DUE TO FINANCIAL AGAIN - DON'T RISK BUYING FROM SELLERS WHO OFFER NO RETURNS !!
