    I had a Wilkinson sword years ago with the same looking "J" but this can be misleading. The Wilkinson blade proof page clearly stated it was a "T". I googled the officer and again it was T for Thomas...

    Looking at the photos I see some wear from repeat sharpening. The possible reason for not having a scabbard could be it had a leather scabbard for India which retains the blade edge.
    The officer may...

    This sword is a good candidate for complete removal of the corrosion. Corrosion is not original to the sword. This sword would clean up nicely. Some 0000 steel wool would work wonders.

    It can be believable this is a battlefield pickup, no modifications to it. The modifications took time to do and I don't believe they had excess in armourers to do the work in the field. Only a...

    Obviously a court sword. Looks to have British elements in the design and makes sense from the location found. Maybe not British but doesn't look French to me. When you're not sure it's "continental"

    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.

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