The 32 1/4 inch blade is well etched and in very good condition except for some rust spots near the tip, firm in the hilt. The steel hilt in very good order, could stand some cleaning. The fishskin grip and associated twisted grip wire bindings are well above average. The steel scabbard with staining, aging and light rusting but still very sound. The sword sheathes and draws very well. There is no maker's mark to the ricasso, it either was never there (indicating the sword was bought through an outfitters where the officer or outfitter did not see value in adding it.

A really well above average example for only £(sale pricing info available for a small fee). Please quote item reference number I19 (1056). Further / full sized pictures available upon request..
