RNR (Royal Naval Reserve) swords are much scarcer than the regular RN (Royal Navy) swords. This one is probably WW1 era (as the trading name of the cutler, Silver and their address of 67 Cornhill would be right for circa 1914).

The 31 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt retaining most if not all gilt is very good; some black tarnish around the "R N R" lettering of the cypher. Grip also very good, a small nick and a tiny spot here and there, nothing much. Twisted grip wire very good, one lesser strand very slightly astray. Scabbard very good; the leather with a little wear, the gilt fittings still very good. Original sword know has a little age / wear, not much. The folding guard section works well and locates properly on the scabbard securing pin.

Well, well, well above average. Grab it quick at just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number AD93 (0625). Full sized / additional photos available upon request.
