Sales enquiries

Absolutely no markings to the sword but with "W L & H Sargant" (trading style from 1838 to 1839) to the scabbard, this sword was probably made as a manufacturer's sample, a campaign sword for a British cavalry officer or for export (in 1839 W L & H Sargant made 600 1821P's for the US Ordnance Department).

The 35 1/2 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The steel hilt / guard with some light pitting and a steady patina. The grip is original with a little age but generally very good (well above average). The original manufacturer chemically browned scabbard has suffered less from damp due the browning and is in very good condition. The sword and scabbard have been painted black at some stage, probably more recently than not, only some traces remaining (easily removed). The sword sheathes and draws well if a little loosely.

Probably the best condition original authentic 1821P trooper's sword you will ever find, and by a high quality Birmingham maker. A snip at £700. Please quote reference R38. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0508-1.18 (2.706).
