1796 Light Cavalry Sword By Gill

Code: 10668


A good example of a 1796 Light Cavalry Troopers Sword.

This example marked to "Gill" on the spine.

Typical D guard with twin langets, the grip down to the bare wood, possibly a period replacement, but all holding solid.

Blade with inspection mark "1" with a crown above.

33 inch blade with single fuller.

Housed in correct scabbard, with twing hanging rings. Beginings of a split opening up along the seam, which could be corrected if desired. The whole sword is "as found" and would benefit from some gentle cleaning and TLC.

Strictly over 18's only. Photo ID will be required before this item can be dispatched.
