1853 Pattern Mole of Birmingham Made British Cavalry Trooper's Sword / Sabre

Sales enquiries

In very good order, a well made 1853P by Mole, complete with acceptance marks to show it was regular cavalry / army bought (not bought by a yeomanry / reserve regiment). Very feint markings to the inside of the hilt, probably the regiment markings but they are too feint to tell now.

The 35 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition, some tarnishing, but overall very good, very little pitting and firm in the hilt. The hilt has some "bruising" but otherwise has kept its shape well, and there is some aging of course. The grips are aged, as is normal with this pattern of sword, but complete. The steel scabbard is also good and the sword sheathes and draws well.

A well above average example and a very good investment. Please quote item reference G20 (953). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
