RARE**NAPOLEONIC PENINSULAR WARS ERA**, British 1786 Pattern 5 Ball Spadroon Infantry Officer’s Sword With Etched Blade & Antique Ivory Hilt. Sn 18051:3 - 18051:3

This is an original rare to find example of a British 1786 Pattern 5 ball spadroon Infantry Officer's sword (see page 159 of World Swords by Withers where similar 1786 spadroons are illustrated). This pattern of sword was approved by King George III and adopted soon after the official abolition of the Officer’s spontoon or half pike. It has the correct brass 5 ball guard and urn top. The correct ribbed antique ivory grip has a small stable crack on one side. The centre of the ivory hilt has a brass ‘cigar’ band. It has a 32 ¾” long fullered, single edged, ‘T’ back blade (38 ½” overall). The blade is lightly etched with indistinct panels on both sides. The blade has staining consistent with age which obscures the etching detail (a professional polish may enhance the detail). There is no manufacturer name visible. As is typical this sword is without scabbard. The price for this rare spadroon includes UK delivery. Sn 18051:3 (NB Ivory Content Comprises less Than 5% Volume & Weight)
