1845P Victorian British Infantry Officer's Campaign Sword

Sales enquiries

With a plain and unmarked blade, this is not a sergeants / issued sword, but an officer's campaign / fighting sword. The blade is fullered but has the older style clipped point, so it is on or very close to 1845 for the year of manufacture.




The 32 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt in generally very good shape (very little disfiguration - these brass hilts are quite frail). The fishskin grip is in slightly worn but very good condition. Single large twisted grip wire in good condition. The folding guard works well. The dark brown leather with brass scabbard is very good for its age. The drag / chape has the blade point just protrudes through, most likely because of leather shrinkage. The sword sheathes and draws well if a little tightly.

A lovely example of a scarce campaign sword. Just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference S69 (0681). Further / full sized images available upon request.
