1853P Mole Made British Cavalry Trooper's
Sword / Sabre, sold
In good condition, one of the better 1853 pattern British cavalry
trooper's swords, made by Mole of Birmingham.
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
