1854 Pattern Royal Marines Light Infantry Sword

Sales enquiries

Very rare and unique variant of the 1845/1854 pattern for British infantry swords; this much shorter Royal Marines sword was designed for use in close quarter naval battles. Made by Robert T Mole & Sons circa 1900, the original shortened blade for naval use has clearly been shortened a little further by accident or in conflict at some stage (as reflected also by the repaired scabbard). Otherwise the sword is in very good condition with good fishskin / ring bindings and the blade firm in the hilt. If it were not for the blade tip loss my price for this sword would be treble what it is. Further pictures available upon request.
