Title 1890 pattern cavalry trooper's sabre
Nationality British
Period c 1890
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

Slightly scruffy example of the penultimate Maltese Cross hilt sabre. Numerous issue dates stretching from the mid-1890s until approximately 1906. Forte of blade marked '/90'. Numerous regimental issue stamps and cancellations to back of hilt.

90%+ factory finish to blade with several small patches of pitting towards the point. Chequered leather grips in reasonable condition, but now somewhat smooth from extensive use. Good iron scabbard, which has been recently machine polished, but all markings, including issue date for 1899, to top of scabbard are clearly visible. Point sharpened for first two inches or so of both sides of blade.

Just letting you know that the whistle arrived here this morning safe and sound. Your excellent packaging was still totally intact and it took me all of five minutes to break into it to see my purchase. I am very pleased, it is a great whistle.
