1821P British Leicestershire Yeomanry Presentation
A very good condition 1821 pattern British light cavalry presentation
sword to Corporal John Pratt of D Troop of the Leicestershire Yeomanry
in 1879, as an award for persuing practice at a gallop.
A very good sword, plain bladed except for the award / presentation
inscription (no maker's name, royal cypher, etc.).
The 34 1/2 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the
hilt, the steel hilt equally good, as is the fishskin grip and associated
twisted grip wire bindings. Steel scabbard also good. The sword
sheathes and draws very well.
A superb example. Please quote item reference H54 (1001). Further
