1908P Mole British Cavalry Trooper's Sword, 1912, leather scabbard

Sales enquiries

Unusual to find the 1908P with a leather scabbard (leather scabbards were normally used by officers). This sword also has the remnants of khaki camouflage to the bowl guard. Perhaps this was a sergeants sword. Perhaps this was one used by an active cavalry regiment (most were retrained as machine gunners as cavalry had limited use in World War 1).

The 35 inch blade is in good condition and firm in the hilt. The bowl guard hilt is also very good (these normally have damage, especially near the pommel). Grip aged but good. The leather scabbard has clearly been stood on its end over the years, and the chape / drag is consequently split / bent / folded. But generally, the scabbard is good and the sword sheathes and draws well.

A great example of this iconic British World War One sword. A great acquisition for just £500! Please quote item reference AC05. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Box 0154-1.18 (2.457).
