Sold Item Notice

A rare item, very few of these swords were ever made. Clearly this one was for dress / formal / regimental display use as it has never been sharpened. A private purchase (by the regiment) sword for a senior NCO, this 1821P has a fishskin grip and no "ear lobes", so the grip is like an officer's sword. There are also absolutely no markings to sabre, again showing that it was bought by a regiment to be carried solely when on parade.

The 35 inch plated blade is in very good condition, some small areas of plating loss, not many, and is firm in the hilt. The plated hilt also in good condition, one area of plating gone, but not too noticeable as it is good quality steel that now shows. The fishskin and twisted grip wire bindings are in good to very good order, some wear, not much. The backstrap has plating loss. The steel scabbard in very good order, a small ding, some patina spots, but very good overall. The sword sheathes and draws very well.

A guaranteed authentic 1821P heavy cavalry trooper's sabre in very good condition. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Please quote item reference number D07 (717).
