Description
Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing

You are bidding on a very rare Royal Engineer's 1850 Drivers pattern experimental Sword, infrequently seen on the market.

This experimental sword was issued to a limited amount of Prussian regiments in 1850 for tests.  It was not adopted but was one step in the development of the Prussian M1852.  The sword was then stored and sold to the British through Liege in Belgium and controlled by British controlled inspectors.  It carries the inspection marks of Liege with a figure "L" over the figure "8". The blade is stamped with 2 arrows facing each other which proves it was issued to the British then marked obsolete.

The hilt is good condition while the blade is fair.  The blade is pitted and has a few dings. The scabbard has dings down one side and I suspect children have been having sword fights with it. 

Overall a very scarce piece for the collector and great investment.
