A full length (35 1/2 inch) bladed 1834P Second Life Guard officer's

this day; that is how good a condition the blade is in. This is
a very difficult sword to source.
The blade is exceptional and firm in the hilt of course. The brass
hilt in very good condition save for some minor scraping to one
bar. The black fishskin grip and triple twisted grip wire bindings
are all present and correct. The steel scabbard with gilt fittings
is in good order, several patina spots; these could be polished
off if required. The sword sheathes and draws well. Please quote
