Sales enquiries

This sword would have seen service in World War One, clearly marked as 9 '12 (September 1912) to the blade. But it ended up in British India (though it is not an Indian pattern 1908, but a true British one) and in a Mole made scabbard (such "marriages were very common"). What make this one interesting is the serpent S buckle on the belts. It has lost its war time camouflage paint and been well polished, so it was clearly used as a parade sword in its later service life.

The 35 inch steel blade is in good condition and firm in the hilt. The plated steel hilt / guard good but with some tiny specs. Grip in good order, marked "99" (or "66"), most likely a weapon number. The plated steel scabbard in good order but aged and with some plating loss / light rust patches. The sword sheathes and draws well. The sword know in good shape. The belts good but with some age and staining.

A good example and with belts! Nicely priced at just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number V93 (1052). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
