A good example of the scarce special pattern City of London Yeomanry troopers sword.
Produced in limited numbers for the City of London Yeomanry who were going off to fight in South Africa in 1900. This pattern was produced exclusively by Hamburger, Rogers & Co.
The unique design features a single fullered blade of 34.5 inches, which is married to a solid form of the 1895 infantry officer's sword. This example is in good overall condition, and has been plated for ceremonial use. The blade has been service sharpened and retains its edge. The blade is firm in the hilt with no movement. The makers marking is slightly obscured by the plating, but still visible.
The ribbed grip appears to be an early form of bakelite or plastic and is unique in this pattern of sword, and is paired with a chequered backstrap and plain, domed pommel. The guard is in good condition, free from dents or other damage, There are the regimental markings deeply struck at the rear of the guard "2. C.L.Y. 124"
The scabbard is absent.
Strictly over 18's only. Photo ID will be required before this item can be dispatched
