Rare and early British Indian Issue 1896 Pattern Mountain Artillery Sword.  Manufactured by Wilkinson Sword and dated 1898 – most examples of these swords that exist are WW1 dated so this is a scarce 19th Century piece.  Regimentally stamped in a number of places to the hilt – 23rd (Peshawar) Mountain Battery (Frontier Force) – raised by Captain T Broughman in 1853.  Also marked for re-issue in 1915 – probably came out of the stores.  Complete with original leather and brass scabbard.  Blade length is 30 inches (35 inches overall).
