Two photos of this one:
Sword and Scabbard (full length)
An officers mameluke sword to the 60th. I can't tell from the photo but if the scabbard is plated and not brass it is post 1900.
The scabbard is plated, so it must be post 1900. The 60th . . . so, I'm looking for someone who served with the 60th? I'll have to dig into that one. Would this have been a dress sword?
Yes a dress sword though some were used in earlier times.
Just to clarify, the "60" on the blade refers to a Regiment?
