    ~ A 1786/96 Pattern George 3rd Infantry Officers Sword ~


    An increasingly difficult to obtain, the 1786/96 infantry sword is a transitional piece found with a variety of single edged fullered and un-fullered blades.

    The fullered blade of our example is blued and decorated with gilded etchings on both sides with arms and drums.

    On one side can be seen King’s George 3rd cypher beneath the crown whilst on the opposite side its coat of arms is clearly visible.

    The gilded brass shell shaped guard is linked to the wooden made copper wired grip by a brass ring.

    The cushion shaped pommel is decorated with floral motifs in relief.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blade is 31 ½ inches (80 cm) and the overall length of the sword is 37 inches (94 cm).

    The sword weighs 600 grams.

    ~ Condition ~

    The blade is in good condition for its age preserving almost entirely its bluing. It has developed minor spots of surface rust and some pitting.

    The hilt has lost its gilt but apart from that its overall condition is good with usage marks and a small bend on its left shell.

    The twisted copper wiring is excellent.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £18 or the sword can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard....Read full description
