Napoleonic British Light Infantry / Grenadier Flank Officer's Sabre / Sword For Sale

Napoleonic British Light Infantry / Grenadier Flank Officer's Sabre / Sword

Bought locally here in Portugal, this is almost certainly, has to be, a Napoleonic wars battle piece (The British, Portuguese and eventually the Spanish fought Napoleon's French army here during the so called "Peninsular War"

It is a British light infantry or grenadiers flank officer's sabre / sword; they much preferred the curved slashing sword this is for close combat condition. I was told that a flank officer's sword greatly increases the chance it was used in combat (over a regular infantry officer's sword). I was also told, which I ado not necessarily believe but will say it anyway, that the tip of this sword came off in the leg of a French soldier; yes well, I do not believe it either, but who knows?! Anyway, it has to have been present during the war.

The blade is now 26 inches; I suspect originally it was another two inches longer. Blade is plain. No movement. The guard is in good shape. The rayskin grip has a few worm holes and wear; the wiring is complete. The metal sheath has some pitting, etc. The blade goes into and comes out of the sheath really well, nice and firm but not too firm.

I think it is a nice piece, makes a great display item and worth a few tales! But you decide what it is worth; 99 cent opening offer with !

Item will be sent registered delivery. I will not ship to countries which do not allow these things and / or I will not send to any countries which says I can not.
