    French 1822 transformed 1883

    One of those swords, a 1882 ‘’bancal’’ for light cavalry that has been transformed with a straightened blade in 1883 and of which only 3000 were made.

    41'' long overall
    40'' outside of scabbard
    34'' long blade

    Marked on spine: ‘’Mre d'Armes de Chât-t Aout 1883 = Cav rie légère M-le 1882 = tmé 1883’’

    Couple of stamps on the blade but hidden by the leather washer. 2 inspectors mark on hilt: a B on shield for Bisch (1854-1864) and an unidentified B on lozenge (reference: pages 146-148 on Sabres et des Épées T.II by Michel Petard). Hilt and scabbard are both stamped with A and no 9000.

    Condition: used.
    Lots of army grease to prevent rust. Everything is solid and sturdy except that the leather on the grip is on a bad shape as seen on pictures. Wire grip is almost completely gone.

    Asking 350$ or best offer.
