Sales enquiries

In great condition for its age except for a mastic strengthening repair to the scabbard leather just above the chape / drag. The previous owner says it was originally owned by an officer in the Duke of Wellington's (West Riding) Regiment.

The 32 1/3 inch blade (serial number M4434) is in very good condition for its age, some light patina patches, period sharpening area around the point. Blade firm in hilt; the hilt / guard generally very good. The fishskin grip and twisted grip wire all in good slightly aged / faded condition. The very nice leather and steel scabbard is very good except for mastic repair / strengthening patch, possibly period. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Robert Mole made some of the very best quality swords, and this is one of them. Very nice for £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference AD81 (0595). Further / full sized images available upon request..
