This 1821 pattern yeomanry cavalry trooper’s sword is stamped with the markings MYC which could be the Manchester Yeomanry Cavalry. The sword’s maker mark is mostly obscured but the spine bears an “R” which could indicate that the maker was Reeves of Birmingham. The sword is in good condition for its approximately 200 years of age and use.

The 830mm slightly curved blade has a thick, flat spine above a wide, single fuller. The blade is double-edged for the final 210mm and terminates in a spear point. The blade is in good, cleaned condition. The blade was service sharpened.

The ricasso bears obscured cutler’s details and the obverse is stamped with MYC. The spine bears a stamped R.

The bars of the guard are in good condition and without rust or tarnish. The contoured wooden grip has areas of wear and loss of the leather wrap but is otherwise in good condition and the blade is firm in the hilt.

The sword is complete with its polished iron scabbard with twin suspension rings and asymmetrical, lyre-shaped shoe. The scabbard is in fair condition with pitting along its length and a couple of small perforations on the edge. A larger dent or perforation on the bottom of the scabbard has been crudely filled and painted silver. The top pf the scabbard is also stamped with the issue/weapon number 29. The sword sheathes and draws smoothly.

This is a fair to good example of a Victorian 1821 pattern yeomanry cavalry trooper’s sword.
