I may have the opportunity to acquire one or both of these and just wanted to quickly post some images here where I can hopefully get some advice from those more knowledgeable than myself on the subject, before I potentially get burned doing so since this is not my area of expertise.
Supposedly these are:
1821 pattern royal artillery sword
Has 'proof mark', royal artillery badge and possibly made in london.. oddly stamped with I think moss bros london address as supplier
1854 pattern rmli sword
Again has proof mark and RMLI etch and possibly VR cypher above rose and thistle? Also bears Rob.Mole & Sons Makers Birmingham legend
The asking price I have been quoted is between £200-300 and just over £400 respectively.
Any thoughts/input welcome.
Thanks in advance.
