BRITISH VICTORIAN PERIOD 1821 REGULATION PATTERN 3 BAR HILT SWORD
The 885mm thrusting blade has a slightly rounded spine and wide single fuller on both sides, tapering to a spear point. The spine is 9mm thick at the ricasso. This is a robust fighting sword. The blade is in good condition with a polished finish. Over time the etching has been polished out, but Queen Victoria's Royal Cypher can be faintly seen.
The ricasso bears a brass stud containing the word “Proved”. No makers mark present.
The nickel-plated three-bar guard is in excellent condition with all the plating intact and no bubbling or damage. The shagreen grip is excellent and the strand of twisted wire is intact and tight.
The sword is complete with its polished steel scabbard. The body of the scabbard is in good condition.
