Sales enquiries

From the Conquest of Tunisia era, a very good 1882M with matching serial numbers to the hilt and scabbard.

The 34 Inch blade is in good order, straight and firm in the hilt. The hilt is good and retains some gilt. The original leather grip is good, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. The scabbard, once browned, has been "cleaned" over the years. The scabbard has a bend in it, but otherwise is in good shape. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Nice example, yours for £500! Please quote item reference number AA68. Further / full sized images upon request. Box 0057-1.18 (2.696).
