British Pattern 1822 Infantry Officer’s Sword

A Victorian 1822 pattern infantry officer’s sword, with a brass scabbard for a Field Officer. This sword must date to 1837-1845 and it has been service sharpened during an interesting period of military history. The brass scabbard indicates someone of Major or higher rank. The blade is in very nice condition with the etching faint but visible, the edge still quite sharp and the point good. The hilt is overall in reasonable condition, but sadly the shagreen grip covering is almost entirely lost, though the grip wire is still in place and everything is quite tight.
