Description
 
Very good example of this increasingly rare sabre.
The grips are great, all present and correct, as are the rivets.
Scabbard is fantastic for its age, some staining and stabilised rust, one screw missing, but all solid and no movement.
Sword is not unit marked, though there is an inspection stamp, shown in photo; MOLE stamped on spine.
This sword may have belonged to Peter Pan in past service as there is the remnants of gold paint...
Sword is all round very solid and beautiful. Blade is full 35.5 inches, with only a light patina and barely noticeable nicks, 2 or three. Only pitting to the blade is around the inspection stamp, as shown in picture.
