Circa 1850 British Constabulary / Police Officer's Sword

Sales enquiries

What a beauty! This must be one of the best 1850 Pattern British police officer swords to be found. Etched blade to premium maker "Parker Field & Sons 233 Holborn London" one side and "O. C. no 45" the obverse (believed to be a police station identification number).

The 22 1/2 inch blade is in Superb condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt also in very good order; the fishskin grip still very sound. The scabbard release stud is a later aesthetic replacement, though the retention clip mechanism is present and works fine, so a working replacement release button could be made. Almost every one of these sabres you find the original button stud has come off, though the replacement looks the part it does not actually do anything; currently, a little wriggle of the scabbard releases it from the catch.

The sword is a beauty and well worth the money. Please quote item reference number G50 (973). Further / full sized images available upon request.
