1827 P George 5th Rifle Regiment Officer's
Sword by Wilkinson (sold)
Very good condition George 5th British (Indian service) rifle
regiment officer's sword.
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
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.
