1908P WW1 Paint British Cavalry Trooper's Sword

Sales enquiries

It is rare to get one of these swords in that ticks most if not all of the boxes. Thankfully no-one ever removed the black war time paint from the hilt, plus you get the full leather frog; a real rarity. Made by Sanderson Brothers & Neubold Ltd in February 1915, this sword for sure saw active service at the Western Front in the Great War.

The 35 inch blade is in very good condition, with crown acceptance, "SB & N Ltd" and "2 15" (February 1915) marks, and firm in the hilt. The hilt also in good condition, the black war time paint a little thin, chipped and worn in places, as you would expect, some slight distortion to the guard where it meets the pommel, as is common. The grip in very good condition. The steel scabbard (without war time paint) is in good condition and the sword sheathes and draws well enough, if a little tightly when fully sheathed. The leather frog assembly is generally good, some leather straps with cracking.

1908P British cavalry trooper swords are exceptionally popular and therefore very hard to source. This is a well above example with WW1 paint and full frog assembly a huge bonus. We have probably under-priced it at £700. Please quote item reference number G80 (972). Further / full sized images upon request.
