British Pattern 1821 Light Cavalry Officer’s Sword
A mid-Victorian light cavalry officer’s sword to the Northumberland Yeomanry, with scabbard. This is a nice big hefty sword, in average condition. The blade, hilt and scabbard have a matching dark patina all over. The etching is more detailed than average and clear on most of the blade. The edge has been sharpened and has a few small nicks (see photos). The leather washer is missing, but of course this could be replaced fairly easily and the hilt remains solid on the tang. The grip shagreen and wire remains in very good condition. This sword could be polished up and improved.
