Sold Item Notice

In well above average condition, this Enfield made 1890P was commissioned in 1897. With various markings to the hilt and scabbard, the sword went to a trooper in the 3rd Hussars in a scabbard previously in service with the 4th Hussars (original service date November 1893). This is quite likely a period cross-match as army items were not discarded or put into stores lightly.

The 34 1/2 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The famous Maltese Cross hilt is in very good order, as is the bakerlite grip. The sword sheathes well. The scabbard in very good order (one throat screw missing).
