Sales enquiries

Inscribed "Manufacture nationale d'armes de Chatellerault Fevrier 1916" to the blade's spine (plus the Model details), this sword appears never to have been issued / sold to an officer as it is in pristine condition (well, infantry swords did not figure at all highly in combat during WW1). The sword and scabbard have matching serial numbers (59426).






The 30 3/8 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard is also very good. The polished wood grip is very good, very little in the wy of marks. The fine twisted grip wire is also very good. The heavy steel scabbard is very good. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Exceptional, well above average. Yours for £500. Please quote item reference T79. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0798-1m (2.386).
