WW1 1907M Imperial Russian Infantry / Artillery
Soldier's Bebout, Sold
A scarce Imperial Russian soldier's short sword, dated 1915 and
with regimental markings.
Very few Imperial marked Russian weapons survived the 1917 revolution,
as the Imperial markings or the items themselves were destroyed
by the new communist rulers. Some survived in Poland, some survived
having been captured by German soldiers.
The 42.8 cm blade has patina spots, but is in good condition and
is firm in the hilt. The wooden grip with some age splits but overall
good. The brass ferrule and grip rivets are aged but good.
A very nice example of a very scarce and appreciating sword, yours
for £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference K42
