Sales enquiries

This is an officer's campaign sword; no nonsense, not for dress, period sharpened. It has Queen Victoria's cypher to the blade, so 1838 to 1845 (when the new fullered blade was introduced), though probably kept by the officer for some time after. As it was sharpened, it perhaps saw service during the First Afghan War, Sikh Wars or even Crimean War.

The 33 7/8 inch blade is in very good condition with the tablet form etching still clear, and is firm in the hilt. The fishskin grip is in overall good condition, some wear. The grip wire is good too. The steel scabbard is aged, with light (inert) rust and some dings, but sound. The sword actually sheathes and draws quite well for something of this age.

Well above and evocative example. Yours for £600. Please quote item reference Q18. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0319-1.18 (2.4).
