1857 Engineers sword Sergts.

This 1857p Royal Engineers Sergeants sword is dated on the guard 16/3/72 and made by Robt. Mole & Sons. Interestingly the blade is etched but does not have the brass proof disc.
It does have the inspection mark Crown/B/3.
It has later made scabbard, leather with brass mounts dated MA 11 03. The only references I have state a brass scabbard. All three brass mounts are numbered 97. The scabbard fits well.
This sword unsharpened may have seen a long service life but not necessarily used constantly.
