Sold Item Notice

A rare sword, made in 1849 by the government owned Enfield small arms factory. On the scabbard there appear to be regiment markings under the browned finish, but I have decided not to try and determine what these are by removing it. Perhaps this sword was involved in the less famous but militarily more accomplished Charge of the Heavy Brigade, which preceded the infamous Charge of the Light Brigade in 1854. I will let someone else determine if they want to remove some of the browning to see if this sabre has anything there to make it significantly more valuable than the price I have put it here for.

Slightly curved, fullered 35.5 inch blade is in very good order, is firm in the hilt and sheathes very well in the scabbard. Marked to the ricasso / forte as shown. Additional photos available upon request. Item reference number 119 (67).
