    ~ Franco Prussian War Period Second French Empire NCO’s Sword ~


    Here we have an NCO sword from the Second French Empire that would have been carried by senior NCO’s and Warrant Officers.

    The sword is of a late smallsword design with an elaborate moulded brass grip and guard.

    The guard shows the equiptment of the lictors of ancient Rome and the other folding side of the guard has a plain shell guard with an interesting spring locking mechanism.

    Overall this is a very interesting and uncommon sword with senior NCO’s being among one of the rarest ranks in any military.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blade is (81 cm) long.

    The sword is 28 inches (96.5 cm) long

    The sword weighs 950g

    ~ Condition ~

    The sword is in excellent condition for its age with its original scabbard and has some old rust marks to the satin finish of the blade.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £25 or it can be inspected in our shop.
