WW2 / George VI British Royal Marines Officers
In good condition, a WW2 / George VI British Royal Marines Officers
Sword, Scabbard, Knot and Bag.
Quite a scarce variation of the 1897 pattern infantry officer's
sword, this one with Royal Marines logo and badge to the etched
blade. The sword itself in near parade ground condition may suit
a serving officer.
The 32 1/2 inch blade in very good condition; it has been replated
but the etching is still clear. Blade firm in hilt. The hilt / guard
is in very good condition, some tarnish / discoloration but not
too much. Grip and twisted grip wire all in good condition. Sword
knot aged and broken strap. Leather scabbard overall good but aged.
Leather carry bag more aged with hood separated and strap gone.
The sword sheathes and draws well.
A good and scarce sword in good condition. £? (too late,
now sold). Please quote item reference AE25 (0717). Further / full
sized images available upon request.
