Authentic French An XIII Cuirassier Trooper's
In good condition, an authentic French An XIII Cuirassier (Heavy
Cavalry) Trooper's Sword.
A guaranteed authentic French An XIII Cuirassier Trooper's Sword,
dated February 1816 to the blade's spine; the inspection
poinçons confirm this date.
The 37 1/2 inch spear pointed blade has been sharpened (the point
and cutting edge), in good condition, some wear (such as the scabbard
guide marks near the poinçons). Blade firm in the grip but
there is a little hilt movement. The heavy brass guard / hilt mostly
very good but the more vulnerable lip has buckled a bit, most likely
from a fall. The very heavy steel scabbard has been period chemically
browned (as almost all were) and has retained most of this finish.
The sword sheathes and draws well.
A stunning and deadly icon of a sword. Your awesome piece of history
for just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference
number W27 (1148). Further / full sized pictures available upon
