Saddam Hussein / Ba'athist era Iraqi Naval Officer's Sword

Sales enquiries

Iraq under Saddam Hussein had a tiny navy, 5 British built corvettes and 1 Soviet era built patrol boat, so this Iraqi naval officer's sword is very rare indeed.





The 28 1/2 inch blade is in very good condition, just a sheathing / drawing line each side, the etching still very crisp and clear. Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt in very good condition, as are the faux fishskin grip and twisted grip wire bindings. The leather and gilt metal scabbard is very good but some signs of wear. The sword sheathes and draws well if a little tight towards full sheathing.

We doubt you will ever get a chance at another. A sound investment for sure, £800. Please quote item reference AE50. Further / full sized photos available upon request. Box 0862-1m (1.902).
