The 32 1/4 inch blade is in good condition but with some patina spots and a couple of small rust patches, firm in the hilt. Hilt generally good but with light rusting inside and a few spots on the outside. Grip with wear and a couple of small moth type holes. The grip wire is good but with some tarnish and a little movement. Original leather sword knot with a weak section near the knot itself. The leather field service scabbard and belts good but with age and wear. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Nice example, research potential. A good deal at just £500. Please quote item reference AE78. Further / full sized images upon request. Box 1014-121x18x16 (2.060).
