~ 1821 Pattern Cavalry Troopers Sword, British Indian Cavalry ~
Here we have a good used example of a British Indian Cavalry sword dating from between approximately 1821 and the 1860’s. These swords were rolled out irregularly or not at all amongst various regiments of Indian Cavalry each with their own unique touches.
This sword for example is almost an exact copy of the British version of the British 1821 Pattern sword aside from the fact that the scabbard has no suspension rings as it was intended to be worn under a sash or belt rather than from a hanger and also it does have a noticeably smaller grip.
The sword has seen some action and has some hefty edge damage and I feel it has already been ground down after sharpening once previously.
The sword is an all steel three bar hilt with a cut and thrust blade.
The grip material is twisted wire and leather.
