Sales enquiries

A superb quality example of the 1885P British cavalry trooper sword by Mole, marked to an elite Yeomanry regiment and which more than likely was taken and used during the Boer War with the then 20th (Fife and Forfar) Company Imperial Yeomanry.

The 34 1/2 inch blade is in excellent condition, with the Robert Mole Birmingham etched "tablet" and several War Department marks, dating the sword originally to July 1889. the scabbard with the latest date mark of November 1896.

The blade is firm in the hilt, the hilt in excellent condition, the grip also in very good condition. Equally the scabbard is very good, and of course the sword sheathes and draws very well. A truly well above if not a gem of an example. Additional / full sized images available upon request. Please quote item reference number F33 (781)
