British Pattern 1796 Infantry Officers Sword
- Price: $795.00 CAD
A very good example of a 1796 officers sword. This piece remains intact which is less common for this pattern. The guard was very fragile making complete swords much scarcer. This example shows the correct 32" blade with a full length fuller to within 1" of the point. This example shows the gilted brass guard with the fold down shell in place. The hilt shows a good percentage of gilding but is missing the small screw on tang button and the German silver wire on the grip. There is a significant amount of heat blue and gilding on the blade. A very good representative 1796 sword.
