Mid Victorian Constabulary (Police Officer's)
Sword, For Sale
In good condition, a Mid Victorian Constabulary (Police Officer's)
No maker's or police force markings and in such good condition
so as most likely to be a stores item (never issued). But 100% mid-Victorian
authentic as has age.
The 26 inch blade is in very good condition, just a couple of patina
(inert rust) patches, otherwise as new. Blade firm in the hilt.
The brass hilt very good, as is the black fishskin grip (no grip
wire, most of these swords never had grip wire). The small round
locking pin button is there and works well (most of these got broken
off over time). The leather of the scabbard with drying / age; crazing.
Otherwise the scabbard good with the sword drawing and sheathing
well (locking mechanism works well).
Well above average example and just £425. Please quote item
reference U31. Further / full sized images available upon request.
