French Version 1837 Infantry Briquetimage Q62 1

Sales enquiries

The subject of hot debate as to whether the "V" stands for Versailles, Verified (vérifié) or Version. I am certain it is not Versailles and believe it to be Version. But you make up your own mind. It is a scarce sword in any event. The poinçons indicate that Thiebaut was the maker of this one.

The 23 1/4 inch blade is sound but with some rust patches, and is firm in the hilt. Brass hilt and grip overall good but with some wear. The scabbard has age, shrunk a little and the seam stitching is coming apart, but is overall sound. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Nit many around. Bag this one for only £? (too late, now sold) . Please quote item reference Q62 (0398). Further / full sized images available upon request.
