    1827 British Rifle Officers Sword Swords

    BladesSwordsUsed£ 595

    Late Georgian Rifle officers sword for the Kings Royal Rifle Corpse, formally the 60th Rifles, originally raised in British North America as the Royal American Regiment



    This is a lovely rare example of a late Georgian pipe-back Rifle Brigade officer's sword. Very good condition period sharpened 32 inch tablet form etched blade some light pitting towards the tip.

    Origionally retailed by Moore, Late Bicknell & Moore, Old Bond St, London which dates it from 1827 too 1832. The 60th Regiment of Rifles changed its name in to The Duke of York's Own Rifle Corps and then, in 1830, to the King's Royal Rifle Corps. Both of these together date the sword to between 1827 and 1830

    In 1827, officers of the Rifle Regiments were authorised to carry their own variation of the standard Infantry Officer sword. The blade was similar to the 1822 pattern sword, changing, along with the line infantry, to a fullered blade in 1845. The hilt was in the gothic pattern but in steel rather than brass with the crown and stringed bugle motif of the light infantry replacing the Royal Cypher. The steel guards were often less well rendered than that of the brass hilts, and there was no folding flap. The pattern is still current for the Light Infantry Regiments...Read full description
