1821 Pattern Post 1902 British Royal Artillery
Officer's Sword (sold)
In overall very good condition, an Edward 7th or possibly George
5th British Royal Artillery officer's sword.
Marked to retailer Forster & Son, 16 Grafton Street, W (West
London), this very impressive 35 1/4 inch blades Royal Artillery
officer's sword was made during the reign of King Edward 7th / George
The blade is well etched and in very good condition except for
a couple of light rust patches on one side. Blade firm in the hilt.
The plated 3 bar hilt with some corrosion spots. The fishskin grip
in good order. The twisted grip wire bindings are present but one
of the smaller strands has come a little loose a couple of turns.
The sword sheathes well in its good condition leather field scabbard.
A well above average example and a good investment at £250.
