A Waterloo era British 1796 pattern heavy cavalry sword with original scabbard. These are becoming fairly scarce in untouched condition. This example has the typical period armourer's alterations of the hatchet point being converted to a spear point for better thrusting, and the near side of the disc guard ground back so as to make it more comfortable and easier to draw. The scabbard is stamped with the number "19", the knuckle guard is stamped "63", and the blade has an armourer's crown and number "4". Overall condition is quite good. The grip has some chips and leather loss, but it's not common to find these swords with original surviving grips.
