Mid Victorian / 19C British Constabulary / Police Officer's Sword & Scabbard

Sales enquiries

One of the few with the scabbard retention pin system complete and working.

The 23 1/2 inch blade is mostly good but some rust pitting around the point, firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard generally aged but good. Fishskin grip in good order. The scabbard is aged, the leather shrunk, the stitching coming apart, split in two, the lower fitting loose BUT complete. The sword sheathes and draws OK. The locking pin mechanism good.

These go for quite a price normally. Not this one though, just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference R32 (0514). Further / full sized images available upon request.
