Victorian Era British 1827 Pattern Royal Navy Officer’s Sword With Etched Panels By W.H. Jeffries Portsmouth & Scabbard. Sn 14667:6 - 14667:6

It has the correct gilt brass lions head with mane pommel and grip strap & half basket knuckle guard with the Royal Navy Queen Victoria Crown and fouled anchor motif. One side of the guard has a small hinged folding langet which, when folded flat fastens to a pin on the throat mount of its scabbard and holds the sword securely in place. The sword’s fish skin grip with copper wire binding is undamaged. The sword is complete with its black leather scabbard which has gilt brass mounts and 2 hanging rings. The leather and stitching of the scabbard are intact. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 14667:6
