British Pattern 1853 Cavalry Trooper’s Sword

An 1853 pattern cavalry trooper’s sword in good condition. Sadly lacking the scabbard, the only other real flaws to mention with this sword is a tiny bit of shrinkage to the leather grips and a notch in the blade (see photo). Otherwise this is a great example and with Indian War Department markings, so it was issued either to an Indian cavalry regiment or to a British cavalry regiment while posted in India. The unsharpened blade is bright and clean, straight and solid in the hilt (of course, being a patent solid hilt!). The guard is equally clean and in good shape – the leather washer is even in place.
