Original example of a British early 19th Century Military Bandsman's Sword. A British Army military bandsman's sword from the early 1800's. Comprises a brass lionshead hilt and ribbed grip. The blade is plain. No scabbard. There are many different variants of the British military bandsman's sword and it appears that regiments were given some leeway as to design and decoration.
Unusual British bandsman's sword type
This tended to fade after 1856 when a standard pattern was introduced. This is a sword type not seen too often. I was lucky enough to acquire two examples of this sword so please see the other listings. In good overall condition with some wear to the blade - small age fracture to grip. Blade length is 22.5 inches (28 inches overall).
