Sales enquiries

A very good British rifle regiment officer's sword, "GRI" for George (5th) India service. Made by Wilkinson in 1929; serial number 61957. I have genuinely not attempted to research this sword's original owner; the Wilkinson sales ledger still exists if any buyer wants to spend £17 in getting the original sales ledger entry information (they do not charge if the information is missing or very deficient).

Not far from service condition; a few rust patches to the blade, a mark to the fishskin (which would probably remove), the hilt a few freckles (the slight brown colour you see is actual preservation oil I have applied to it - this wipes off), the sword knot very tired. But nicely etched 32 1/2 inch blade firm in the hilt and a new replacement black leather scabbard makes this a superb display piece. Further / full sized images available upon request. My item reference number is 535.
