Sold Item Notice

The is a British made (for India service) sabre, but with no maker's marks; there is just the I Broad Arrow mark on the spine and a number 7 to the inside of the guard. The scabbard is marked "RHA C 62" (Royal Horse Artillery, C Troop, Weapon 62). Given the RHA served in India and the equal patina of the sword Vs scabbard, if the sword is not original to the scabbard, it almost certainly a period service replacement.

The 35 1/4 inch blade has a steady patina and is in very good order, with a period nick to the front cutting edge, and is firm in the hilt. The hilt with some light pitting and a steady patina is overall good. The grip is aged and worn but good. The heavy steel scabbard has a light pitting and steady patina in keeping with the hilt / guard. The sword sheathes and draws very well.

A good example at a great price, just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference R01 (0449). Further / full sized images available upon request.
