Sold Item Notice

A nice example and with the original trooper's name, "W Stullker" added to the blade's forte, and with matching regiment, troop and weapon numbers "13.U.4.104." to the inside of the guard and chape / drag of the scabbard. Plenty of research material for a keen collector to get their teeth into. The sword made even more interesting by the battle honours etched to the blade; Peninsular, Waterloo, Garcia-Hernandez, all Napoleonic battles fought under, alongside or with the British, only for this sword to be carried against the British in WW1 and presumably captured as a war trophy by British forces, as it was bought by us in the UK and is said to have been in the family of the vendor for a long time.

The 34 inch blade is in good condition, well etched and firm in the hilt. The hilt is aged, some slight damage, the folding section stiff. The grip has suffered some losses and has been glued (could be improved). The scabbard is overall good, but some slight damage but not much. The sword sheathes and draws well though, despite this.

A good example and hopefully a researcher's gold mine. Please quote item reference number I27 (1073) . Further / full sized images available upon request.
