A scarce British c.1900's Indian Police Force Officer's Sword
These swords are quite uncommon and were carried by British police officers whilst serving in India. They are identical to British Army patterns except that in place of the usual royal cypher, there is inserted the intertwined letters, "IP"(Indian Police). The hilt is nickel-plated steel with fishskin and silver twistwire to the grip and also retains the original leather sword knot. The blade is retailer marked to Silver and Co. of London and I would date this to the first quarter of the 20th Century. The blade is etched with the royal crown and India Police initials. Complete with leather field service scabbard.
Condition of the Sword
In very good condition with just light staining to blade in places.
Specifications of the Sword
Blade length is 33 inches (38 inches overall).
