The 35 1/2 inch blade is in very good condition, some scuffing but overall excellent for the age, well etched with Edward 7th's royal cypher and the 9th Queens Own Royal Lancers. The blade is firm in the hilt. The face of the hilt is very good, there is some former light rust to the inside of the bowl but this does not detract. The fishskin grip is good, clearly having been held so a little worn, the twisted grip wire bindings with some strand loses. The steel scabbard in very good order and the sword sheathes and draws very well.

A superb well above average example of this iconic cavalry sword made even more valuable by the markings to the 9th Lancers. A great investment; you will drive fellow collectors crazy with envy with this one! Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Please quote item reference number D14 (697).
