Sold Item Notice

Period sharpened for field use, most of the blue and gilt etching remaining. Flank officers had their own pattern of sword; shorter for close combat use after the shot (bullets) were gone. No maker's name to the blade, just "warranted", so probably sold by a retailer (tailor, outfitter, etc.).

The 26 3/8 inch blade in very good condition, only a tiny bit loose in the hilt. The hilt in good condition, as is the original leather grip and silver metal grip bindings. Steel scabbard in good condition; the sword sheathes and draws well.

This is a field weapon in very good condition for its age, with much blue and gilt etching remaining. These do not come by / available often and £? (too late, now sold) is a very good price indeed. Please quote item reference number V08 (0953). Further / full sized images upon request.
