French 1882 Model Cavalry Trooper's Sword,
dated April 1885, Sold
In good condition, a French 1882 Model Cavalry Trooper's Sword,
dated April 1885.
From the Conquest of Tunisia era, a very good 1882M with matching
serial numbers to the hilt and scabbard.
The 34 Inch blade is in good order, straight and firm in the hilt.
The hilt is good and retains some gilt. The original leather grip
is good, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. The scabbard, once
browned, has been "cleaned" over the years. The scabbard
has a bend in it, but otherwise is in good shape. The sword sheathes
and draws well.
Nice example, yours for £? (too late, now sold)! Please quote
item reference number AA68 (0057). Further / full sized images upon
