1885 Pattern Cavalry sword as used by both the British & Australian Colonial Forces on war service.
The sword features a two piece leather grip, mounted onto a plain steel back strap and pierced nickel guard with the classic 4 sectioned Maltese cross. The slightly curved blade has the classic 'blood groove' running 2/3 the way down the 88 cm blade. Non marked. A very well looked after blade, very fine for it's age. Swords slides into the metal field service scabbard well, scabbard is in good condition with both fixed suspension rings being present. Scabbard shows age wear overall, but very sturdy. A very presentable cavalry sword. Overall length: 107 cm. Please view all pictures & description carefully and bid accordingly!
