EXTREMELY RARE, British 1864 Pattern Cavalry Troopers Sword By Robert Mole & Sons Birmingham & Enfield WD Marked Scabbard To The 4th Light Dragoons. Sn 13843 - 13843

1864 Pattern Cavalry trooper's swords are rare to find. It is known that 12,000 of the weapons were in stock for use in the second Afghan war (see page 100 of World Swords by Withers where this pattern of sword is described as extremely rare). This is an original, 1864 Pattern British Cavalry Troopers Sword & Scabbard. The Sword has a 32 ½” single edged slightly curved blade with fullers (38 ½” overall). The blade has light staining to be expected with age. The ricasso is marked by the manufacturer 'Robt Mole & Sons Birmingham'. The reverse has a small inspection mark. The back of the blade is stamped ‘Mole’ and with matching inspection mark. It has the correct full bowl guard with 4 pierced triangles forming a stylised cross. The guard also has 2 sword knot slits (this is not seen on any other British Military regulation sword). It has the correct chequered black leather scales secured by 5 rivets. The sword is complete with its steel scabbard with 2 hanging rings. The scabbard is undamaged and is nicely Regiment marked near to the throat on one side ‘IVLD’ to the 4th Light Dragoons, above weapon number ‘69’. The reverse is marked ‘Enfield’ together with WD inspection mark. The price for this extremely rare piece includes UK delivery. Sn 13843
