1853P Enfield made British Cavalry Trooper's
Sword & Scabbard, Sold
In overall good condition, an 1853P Enfield made British Cavalry
Trooper's Sword & Scabbard.
The scabbard has the remains of regimental markings showing; it
may be possible to remove the (inert) rust to determine more / everything.
The 35 1/2 inch blade is in good condition with black patina over
most of it, firm in the hilt. The hilt like the scabbard has inert
rust pitting, but is overall good / sound. The grip in good though
a little worn / aged. The scabbard with inert rust pitting obscuring
the regimental markings. The sword sheathes and draws well.
A nice example and maybe a good home refurbishment project for
someone, not least to potentially reveal the regimental information.
A nice buy; yours for £? (too late, now sold). Please quote
item reference AC58 (0316). Further / full sized images available
