WW1 Imperial 1827 model Russian Cavalry Trooper's
Czar Nicholas 2nd marked, post 1909, WW1 era 1827 model Russian
light cavalry trooper's sabre in good condition.
A very rare 1827 model Imperial Russian light cavalry trooper's
sabre with Nicholas 2nd's cypher to the blade and hilt backpiece
(making it post 1909). Almost certainly a WW1 pick-up or from a
fleeing / retreating white army soldier. Imperial marked swords
after the Revolution were destroyed by communist Russia.
Made by Alex Coppel of Solingen, a noted maker for the Russian
army, the 82 cm tri-fullered blade is in very good order overall
with some rust spots, firm in the hilt, the hilt a little loose
(no much), the ring bindings (twisted grip wire) missing but wooden
grip in good order otherwise. Sheathes well into painted steel scabbard.
Overall a very good condition example of a rare sword. Such is the
scarcity of this sabre Further / full sized images available upon
request. My item reference number is 549.
