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.

Collected bayonet this morning, all safe & sound as described. Been looking for one as good as this for years. Thank you.

Yes, arrived safe and sound, very nice, and very interesting. Have a couple of friends in the States slavering over the pictures, one of them loves searching old lists, etc. If I can tie it down more definitely will let you know.
