Prussian / German 7th Hussars 1889M Cavalry
Trooper's Sword, sold
In very good condition, an 1889 model Prussian / German cavalry
trooper's sword, marked to the 7th Hussars.
A lovely looking sword, with markings; "7. H. E. 92."
(weapon 92 of E troop of the 7th Hussars).
The 32 1/8 inch blade has some wear and rust / patina, but is generally
very good and firm in the hilt. The hilt has some signs of wear
(slightly bent in places, almost certainly period from being carried
on horseback). Grip very good. Steel scabbard with wear, patina
/ rust and a ding / crease near the drag, but overall good. The
sword sheathes and draws well.
Nice sword, good provenance, great price; £(too late, sorry
- but we will tell you the original sales price for a small fee).
Please quote item reference N56 (1317). Further / full sized images
available upon request.
