1912 Patt Rare George V Cavalry Troop Sergeant-Major's Sword

Sales enquiries

A rare sight; a British officer's 1912 pattern cavalry sword with War Department stamps to the blade forte and a trooper's 1908 pattern scabbard. This is no mismatch however, it is a very rare Cavalry Troop Sergeant-Major's sword, and what a beauty. In well above average condition, it is rare to find a commissioned officer's 1912P in such good order. The etching on the blade is superb and clear, the overall sword has been very well looked after.

 

The lovely 34 1/4 inch blade is in very good order, some minute rust spots but nothing too much, marked to George V and maker S & J Kitchen, Sheffield, War Department stamps, etc. Blade is firm in the hilt. The hilt bowl in generally very good condition, well above average. The fishskin grip a little worn and the twisted grip wire bindings a little loose here and there as you would expect, but overall very good and sound. The steel scabbard in very good order, with some rust patination of course. The sword sheathes and draws exceptionally well. Under-sold at only £450. Further / full sized photos available upon request. Item Ref: 901.
