1861 Pattern British Victorian Infantry Staff Sergeant's Sword

Sales enquiries

It is rare to find this pattern of sword in such excellent condition. As an issued (British army purchase) sword, these generally endured long, harsh service lives, yet this one is in untypically fine condition.

Regulation 32 1/2 inch blade is marked to Robt Mole Birmingham and bears a couple of acceptance / inspection marks; the blade is in fine condition and firm in the hilt. The brass hilt, with its simplified "VR" royal cypher is in very good order, the fishskin grip and twisted wire grip bindings all good. The steel scabbard a little aged by the sword sheathes well and the scabbard is in overall good order. An exceptional specimen. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. My item reference number 609 (229)
