Folding Guard 18th Century French Infantry Officer's Swordimage A88 1

Sold Item Notice

This sword was once held by an infantry officer of the French 1st Republic, and it is scarce going on rare. What is more, the folding guard section is in very good order, which makes it even rarer.

The 72 cm blade is firm in the hilt. The hilt in good shape and very sound; the folding guard mechanism in good working order. The leather and twisted grip wire bindings in good order, a few worm holes to add to the authenticity! A very nice sword from a very turbulent time in France, to say the least. You don't see many of them, so invest quick. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Please quote item reference: A88 (512)
