In good condition and with useful amounts of blue and gilt etching
remaining, a pre-1801 Royal Coat of Arms British light cavalry officer's
With the three fleurs-de-lis to the top right quadrant of the British
Royal Coat of Arms on the blade, this sword was made before 1802.
The 32 inch blade is in good though aged condition, perhaps 30%
blue and gilt etch remaining. Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt /
guard in good condition. The original leather grip with some small
patch losses, not much / many, and the associated twisted silver
metal wire grip bindings are still good. There is no scabbard, but
it may be worth buying a replica as the scabbards of these often
fit the original swords (no guarantee given however).
