Rare 1850P British Dundas with Customs / Constabulary / Court markings

Sales enquiries

Designed by Colonel W. B. Dundas as an artillery gunner's sword, very few saw service as intended, but were also used by British Customs, Police (Constabulary) and possibly courts. The "HC" engraving on this sword therefore fits in with this, but we do not know which service it was used by. There are no inspection marks to the blade that we can see, so it was not used by the British army.

The 28 3/8 inch blade has aging / pitting to it, but is still very sound and firm in the hilt. The brass hilt with some aging, but overall good. A great opportunity for the serious sword collector at only £425. Please quote item reference number L64. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 1198-1m (1.795).
