1827 Pattern Victorian Rifle Regiment Officer's
A mostly very good condition 1827P Victorian British rifle regiment
It looks and is in exceptionally good condition except for the
last (point) end of one side of the blade (thankfully not affecting
the etching), where it is rusted. Regrettably I do not have an electro-plating
company anywhere near me (to prepare and replate the tip area),
as this is what I would inexpensively do to make this a truly shining
example worth over double what I am asking for it. It is currently
as it stands a stunning sword, especially if you only view one side
of the blade.
The 32 1/2 inch blade is well etched, including the rare version
of Queen Victoria's cypher only found on some but by no means all
rifle regiment swords; there are some light rust spots here and
there on the etching but very little in comparison with most swords
of this age. Firm in the hilt, the guard, grip and ring bindings
are all in equally good order. The steel scabbard is good but with
a ding in it.
Further / full sized pictures (including the rust area on the last
1/3 of the blade one side) available upon request. My item reference
number 556 (207).
