    FS: Silver Gilt Mole Rifles Officer Sabre

    For sale this unusual example of a Rifles Officer sabre of the 1854 pattern. The blade is in pristine shape, with only a small amount of corrosion at the tip which could clean very nicely (I might have time to do it myself actually). The blade is unmarked, except for the usual etchings of a Victorian Rifle Regiment. It does bear the usual proof mark of Mole, one of the top sword makers in England at the time. It is the second time I run across a unmarked Mole blade which also bears empty heralds. It is possible that this blade was sold by Mole to a retailer who did not inscribe his name, which was common practice at the time. The blade is slender, making it an agile and swift blade, but still able to deliver good cuts.

    What makes this sword rather unique is the hilt. It has the usual Rifles steel guard but it is covered in silver gilt, which is something I have not seen before. Through years of polishing, the lacquer is now mostly gone, revealing the underlying silver plating, but it remains in many spots, retaining a unique look.

    The saber also comes with its original scabbard sporting a patina quite usual for its age.

    The overall sword is in splendid condition with no twist, cracks or any loose part.

    Price: 700$ CAD
