For sale, this very solid example of a very scarce British pattern, the 1821 light cavalry trooper sabre. This sabre was carried by British troops during the Crimean War, as well as many other conflicts, and armed Canadian volunteers well into the 1860s.
The sabre has some surface pitting on the hilt, and very faint traces on the blade itself. The grip is in good shape and is very solid with no rattle. The sword still sports its original leather washer.
The scabbard has a few nicks and very minor surface pitting at the drag.
There are no visible markings on the sword, but traces that indicate that an inspector mark might have been present at some point.
A great example of this rare sabre that would complete a pattern collection nicely.
