Mid Victorian British Constabulary Officer's
Sword & Scabbard, Sold
In fair to good condition, a Mid Victorian / 19C British Constabulary
/ Police Officer's Sword & Scabbard.
One of the few with the scabbard retention pin system complete
The 23 1/2 inch blade is mostly good but some rust pitting around
the point, firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard generally aged but
good. Fishskin grip in good order. The scabbard is aged, the leather
shrunk, the stitching coming apart, split in two, the lower fitting
loose BUT complete. The sword sheathes and draws OK. The locking
pin mechanism good.
These go for quite a price normally. Not this one though, just
£? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference R32 (0514).
