ULTRA RARE BRITISH PATTERN 1788 LIGHT CAVALRY SABER

$1,295.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 88-96

This may be one of the hardest patterns of British sabers to find. Our example is the trooper's model but possibly NCOs as it has ray skin grips. The 36-inch blade is in excellent condition and deeply stamped "WOOLEY" on the spine. The scabbard is a gun metal gray with no pitting and a couple of minor dents both suspension rings are extant. The iron hilt is free of pitting but has a small 1-inch piece broken from the back strap; this does not affect soundness, no play in the hilt. The ray skin grips are 95% intact; near the place where the back strap is damaged there is some loss (This saber was allegedly battle damaged in Egypt in 1800 by a French shell fragment and it looks it). Ex. Pat Donnelly collection this is an important 18th century sword.  [PE] [ph:L]
