1821 Pattern British Heavy Cavalry Trooper's
In very good condition, a rare 1821 Pattern British heavy cavalry
This is going to be the best ever authentic 1821P heavy cavalry
trooper's sword you will ever get the chance to buy. Why is it in
such good condition? Because it was likely made for export, probably
the Confederate Army but never made it there. There is no maker's
mark, no inspection marks, nothing. If it were a manufacturer's
sample, it would have their name on it. But, be assured, this is
a 100% guaranteed authentic British made 1821P that has never been
used (the blade has never been sharpened).
The 35 1/3 inch unsharpened blade is in very good condition and
firm in the hilt. The steel hilt and scabbard appear to have been
period chemically browned rather than having just a steady patina,
but there is patina and sometimes a very light rust pitting as well.
Steel hilt in very good condition. The leather grip has age cracking
but is very good. The steel scabbard equally good. The sword sheathes
and draws a little loosely.
A rare sword in rare near original condition. Yours for £?
