The spine of the blade marked to “F s Deakin (crown mark) Cast Steel” which likely dates this sword from 1840 to 185o; Deakin of Birmingham was a prolific maker of high quality light and heavy cavalry trooper swords. The blade is etched one side “S Y C” for Surrey Yeomanry Cavalry and “71” for the sword number.
The 35 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt / three bar guard with a slight pitting and steady patina is in good to very good condition. The original leather grip is in very good condition considering its age. The heavy steel scabbard is in equal condition to the hilt / guard, engraved “S Y C” one side and “(illegible) 0 7” to the obverse. The sword sheathes and draws well if a little bit loosely.
This is a well above average 1821P from a renowned quality maker. Well worth the price tag, was £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference AG07. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 1329-121x18x16 (2.634).
