British ERII Royal Army Service Corps Officer's
Wilkinson Sword, sold
In very good condition, a British ERII RASC Royal Army Service
Corps Officer's Wilkinson Sword.
Serial number 9564 for 1969, in near or in parade ground condition.
The 33 1/2 inch blade is in very good condition, some sheath scuffing,
some tiny spots of surface oxidation, nothing much; towards the
point there is some slight staining (a metal cleaning polish may
well remove this). Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt good but with
a small section of plating loss on the inside of the langet. The
faux fishskin grip with some small signs of wear, the twisted grip
wire bindings in good order. The leather sword knot and field service
scabbard both generally good. The sword sheathes and draws well.
No more Wilkinson to make any more ensures this is an investment
at £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference AB48
(0101). Further / full sized images available upon request.
