1908P British South African / Suid Afrika Cavalry Trooper's Sword

Sales enquiries

This is a rare version of the British 1908 pattern cavalry trooper's sword; one marked to and used in South Africa. It is rare both due to the South Africa connection, and also that the blade is etched; this is very rare for a trooper's sword.

The 34 3/4 inch blade has very feint etching, but it appears that it was made with very feint etching. Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt good but with some slight damage / bending / misalignment, probably due to use. Grip good. Steel scabbard good but with some patina. A little loose when sheathed.

Nice sword at a nice price, just £450. Please quote item reference L31. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 1204-1.18m (2.633)
