33 1/2” curved broad fullered blade with WD and broad arrow mark, '90 and ’95 (1890, 1895) issue dates and ordnance marks. Blade bright with a few small isolated pitting speckles. 1/2” at the root with surface rust. Iron guard with Maltese cross motif marked 10H 648. Diced leather scale grips. Iron scabbard, the throat marked 12.1887 / I 2 R/ 2 G. Hilt and scabbard with storage surface rusting. Additional suspension ring to the scabbard, for display or parade. Rare pattern as these were ordnance (as opposed to officer’s swords which were privately owned) and few if any were sold as surplus. The broad arrow intact (not canceled) indicates that this example was never officially removed from service. 10H probably indicates use by the 10th Light Horse regiment of the Australian Army. Worth researching.
