Sales enquiries

The JJ Runkel Solingen inscription can just be read on the blade's spine. The remains of the regiment name "XXXXXX Light Dragoons" only has the "Light Dragoons" part legible, as this was protected from over zealous cleaning over the years courtesy of the langets.

The highly curved 33 1/4 inch blade was period sharpened, as you would expect. The blade has been cleaned to the point only a little of the original etching still exists under the langets, Blade is firm in the hilt. The hilt is in good shape, as is the grip.

A scarce sabre and well worth our price. Please quote item reference H58 (1026). Further / full sized images available upon request.
