1853 Pattern British Cavalry Trooper’s Sword For Sale
Good condition, maker marked 1853 pattern British cavalry trooper's
sword and scabbard.
The 1853 pattern cavalry sword is fast becoming a rare collector's
item because of American buyers keen to own them (the pattern was
used by both Union and Confederate troops in the American Civil
War. This trooper's sword is marked to the New South Wales Cavalry
of Australia, troop C, trooper 12.
The mark "T & C" to the blade's forte is believed
to mean "tenders and contracts" and come the Solingen
maker P D Luneschloss; in 1821 the government owned Enfield factory
started producing swords mainly from imported blades. The sword
generally is in good to better condition with no movement or looseness
anywhere; I would accept £450 for it. Further pictures available
