BCS-45: . CANADIAN TRIALS P.1864 TROOPERS SWORD: Maker: Mole, stamped on back edge by the hilt. Blade is otherwise unmarked. It is well known and documented that the major complaint of the P.1864 sword was that of the hilt which damaged the trooper’s tunics. This is a Canadian attempt to rectify that problem, by cutting away the inner edge to lessen the chafing on the uniform. The lip of the guard is stamped “25”over “B”. At this period in time, that would have been B Troop of Leeds, (Brockville). The scabbard is stamped “E” over “46” and at this period in time that would have been 1st Guelph. The scabbard is the very rare Canadian modification of the P.1853 scabbard by placing the rings at the top of the scabbard, dating this modification to Post 1885 as this method was adopted for the P.1885 sword (see Vol. 13 C.J.A.C. – copy with sword). The model P,1864 was never popular with the troops, many attempts were made to improve it, hence the adoption of the P.1882 and P.1885 swords. $850.00

BCS-54:  BRITISH NAVAL OFFICER’S SWORD:. Circa 1870. Retailer: RANKEN & CO, CALCUTTA. Gold washed hilt with figures of a seated Britannia with a union shield on the grip and Britannia standing with an anchor on the knuckle guard. The back side of the grip has a seated Neptune with trident. The shell guard and pommel have mythological figures. There are military trophies, stands of arms scattered throughout the hilt. The 31” blade is very clean with a lovely patina. A few small spot stains. The retailers cartouche is very clear “RANKEN & CO. CALCUTTA”.
