This is a scarce example of an 1822 Sergeant Sabre with the hybrid quillback/fullered blade. The guard is marked with George IV’s cypher, situating it between 1822 and 1830.
It has a fairly large guard, forming nearly a half basket. The blade has some superficial pitting all over, but is otherwise in very good condition. The riginal leather washer is still there, and the hilt is tight and solid.
A very nice and stout example of this pattern
