Mid 20C Portuguese Cavalry / Mounted Artillery
Trooper's Sword, sold
In very good condition, a Toledo Mid 20th Century Portuguese Cavalry
/ Mounted Artillery Trooper's Sword.
With the Toledo royal maker's mark to the forte / ricasso, this
very well made and sturdy sword gives away the fact it was made
for the Portuguese army by the "A E" (Arsenal do Exercito)
stamp to the suspension mount on the scabbard.
The 33 5/8 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the
hilt. The browned three bard hilt has some aging but is generally
in very good condition, a hard to see fracture to the top near the
pommel (probably why the sword was apparently decomissioned, sold
to the public). The faux fishskin grip and twisted grip wire bindings
are also well above average. The browned steel scabbard with a single
suspension ring is in very good shape. The sword sheathes and draws
Actually a very nice sword, well made and in very good condition.
