British 1804 Pattern Royal Navy / Naval Cutlass,
In very good condition, an authentic 1804 pattern (Battle of Trafalgar
era) British Royal Navy Cutlass
We guarantee this is an authentic Georgian British 1804 pattern
navy cutlass, not one of the many falsely aged reproductions on
the market (be warned; we have seen several being falsely sold as
antiques on various other sites). This cutlass was bought by us
from The Pines Garden Museum (operated by the Bay Trust).
The 25 1/2 inch blade is in very good order, has a lovely speckled
patina, what appears to be the remnants of an etched / stamped crown
and is firm in the hilt. The "8 guard" hilt is in very
good shape, as is the ribbed steel / iron grip. 1804P's do not normally
come in such good condition unless they are reproductions; again,
this one is 100% authentic, guaranteed.
An exceptional investment. Please quote item reference G08. Further
