    Eric it is the 1853 hilt but the blade looks like a cutlass and length corresponding. It does not appear to have lost length and the spear point looks well done.

    Vladimir this is an interesting sword with its V shaped blade. The frog stud appears to be added at some point because the scabbard still retains the lower ring for a sword belt sling.

    I have an 1899p with leather scabbard with wooden core. The steel mouth has some sort of amber coloured material that protects the blade edge.

    The age of the sword is convincing and add the good details and blade shape I'm inclined to say it's authentic.

    Dale is this the same pattern? I was told this is an officers private purchase. Has plated blade and bakelite grips and painted black pommel and guard.

    Do you have Robsons Swords of the British Army? References such as this should clear things up. Guards officers swords from 1854 onwards are self evident with the regiments crest.

    Guards officers had their own pattern of sword in 1854 with steel hilt and their regimental device in the guard. Their private purchase swords could have only the regimental device in the sword guard...

    I would think only band swords would be worn in the Victorian era. Enlisted soldiers did not have swords unless you are discussing the 1700's and earlier.

    Mole sword #M2673 is an 1895p infantry officers sword. This is the highest number I've seen for 1895. Is there a dedicated post to Mole serial numbers?
