1786 Pattern British Infantry Officer's Five
Ball Spadroon, Sold
In good overall condition, a scarce 1786 Pattern British Infantry
With diamond section blade, this scarce sword has a little damage
to the 5 bar hilt section (there is a crack on one bar to the forward
side where it meets the hilt proper, but the crack does not go all
the way through to the other side, so it is not a break).
The 30 7/8 inch diamond section blade is in good condition with
a steady patina, some light rust (now inert) and is firm in the
hilt. The brass hilt is generally very good save for the one crack.
The reeded ivory grip sections are good and yellow with age.
A very nice and above average example of a very scarce sword.
It can be in your collection for just £? (too late, now sold).
