Medieval sword found in garage sells for £30k

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A rusty 600-year-old sword used by Highlander mercenaries has sold for a whopping £30,000.

The medieval weapon, believed to date from the 15th or 16th Century, originated in the Scottish Highlands.

Only a few swords from the era survive, with most displayed in ancestral homes or museums.

The sword was valued at £200 before being sold for 150 times that amount to a Canadian buyer by Hutchinson Scott auction house in Skipton, Yorkshire.

Hutchinson Scott said the dimpled surface of the sword meant it was likely to have been buried, submerged or exposed to the elements for many years.
