A really nice Boyle, Gamble foot officer sword with two hard to find features. A B&G metal scabbard of which only a handful are found today and the blade with the long ricasso extending 6 inches until the start of the fuller which runs 13 inches. This style blade is full thickness on the cutting edge for 7 inches and then slims to s cutting edge. The hilt is excellent with a completely untouched patina leaving a deep chocolate brown color to the brass. Standard openwork floral decoration on the guard with some casting flaws. Decorated pommel cap with leaf design and four well defined steps to the top. The blade is bright with just a few darker stains from handling. NO Pitting at all. The original leather grip is 90% with just a few spots worn through exposing the wooden core. Twisted brass wire is also tight and original with 10 turns. The metal scabbard is perfect with some original lacquer finish and no dents or rust. The throat, mounts and drag are all screw fastened with great patina. This is one that would be hard to upgrade. A rare pattern, all original and great untouched condition.
