Description

the sword is 25 inches long with the scabbard on it. looks like brass or bronze handle with same metal used for the top of the scabbard. "MOLE" is ingraved on the sword blade and on the side of the scabbard. the scabbard has the number 21 stamped at the top of it.the handle has a triangle at the top with the number 8 on it from what i can tell. the opposite side of the handle has marking almost like the letter "P". side of the handle from what i can tell has a crown symbol followed by the letters "DR' then the number 23. again it is hard to read most of the markings. scabbard looks leather mainly and original as far as i can tell. my camera sucks i can take more/better pictures if needed.

What does this mean?

Dear customer,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. My sincere apologies for the delay of the apprisal.
The presented object is a Victorian 1st edition pattern buglars sword with a blade by Robert Mole. This piece was probably made around circa 1860.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 80 to 160 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
Georg
