Original Early British Pattern 1822 Officer's Sword with George IV Royal Cypher - Circa 1825

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a lovely example of a British George IV Era (1820-1830) Pattern 1822 Officer's Sword. The sword is very nice, and has an upmarket brass Pattern 1822 hilt, with a wooden sharkskin wrapped grip bound with twisted wire. There is some wear to the sharkskin, and the guard is a bit deformed, but overall it's a very nice hilt. There is a very attractive CROWN / GR / IV Royal Cypher on the top of the guard. It even has a fold down guard on one side, for a more comfortable fit against the hip of the wearer.

The sword has the correct "key-hole" or "pipe-back" blade of the 1822 Pattern, which is in very good shape. It has the CROWN / GR / IV royal cypher etched onto both sides, with some foliate designs surrounding it. The blade shows a worn steel patina on both sides, with some past staining and oxidation, mostly on the right side of the blade. The etched panels do not have much of their original dark background present.

A very nice officer's sword from the early 19th century. Ready to display!
