1827 Pattern Victorian British Rifle Regiment
Officer's Sword, (sold)
In good to very good condition, an 1827P Victorian British rifle
regiment officer's sword and scabbard by Firmin.
A good example of a Victorian rifle regiment officer's sword by
Firmin, one of the better makers to say the least. The etching still
The 32 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition for its age, just
under 1" at ricasso, the etching still clear, the blade still
firm in the hilt. The steel hilt has patina but is steel, not plated,
so could easily be cleaned if desired. The fishskin grip is in very
good condition, the twisted grip wire bindings are all there, one
smaller strand a little wayward if encouraged. The steel scabbard
has a kink both sides, clearly done when the blade was outside.
The swords sheathes and draws well. A very good example. Full sized
