1804 pattern British Royal Naval Cutlassimage K91 1

Sold Item Notice

This is an unusual cutlass only in that the blade has the remains of an inscription; not a maker's mark but possibly a ship's name (though too feint for us to determine). This 1804P served with the British Royal Navy we know, for sure, as there us a broad arrow and feint crown over number acceptance marks to the hilt / guard.

The 26 1/2 inch blade with feint remnants of engraving down one side is pitted but sound and overall in good condition for its age. Blade firm in hilt. The figure of eight hilt is in good shape also, some bending damage, but not much, some pitting, but not much. The grip is equally aged though still in good shape. Given the harsh service lives these cutlasses had, this example is truly well above average.

A superb investment. Please quote item reference K91. Further / full sized images available upon request.
