William IV 1821P British Light Cavalry Officer's
Sword / Sabre, Sold
In aged condition, a William IV 1821 Pattern British Light Cavalry
First Afghan War era sword. No visible maker's name; there is a
tablet etched at the ricasso / forte but it is now feint.
The 32 1/8 inch blade is aged and worn but good / sound and firm
in the hilt. The wide flared 3 bar guard is good but has a possibly
period break and repair. The fishskin grip has missing patches;
most of the twisted grip wire bindings are gone. The later painted
scabbard is sound; there is an evident repair towards the drag /
chape. The sword sheathes and draws loosely.
A rare sword, yours for £? (too late, now sold). Please quote
item reference P73 (0260). Further / full sized images available
