Sabre / Sword, Sold
In good to very good condition, a pre-1875 Victorian British General's
1831P Mameluke Sabre / Sword, etched to Mills, Greens End, Woolwich.
Etched at the ricasso to military tailors (Thomas and George) Mills,

The 31 1/2 inch blade is in good condition and firm in the hilt.
The hilt is overall good with some gilt remaining. The ivory grip
is good, one small chip one side. The brass scabbard (for a more
senior officer) is in good condition, a little ding here, a little
staining there. The sword sheathes and draws well.
