Edward 7th Coldstream Guards Officer's Sword

Sales enquiries

A good Coldstream Guards officer's sword by Edward Smith Cutlers of London. The blade etched with initials OFC (or in a different order). This sword is not researched and given the period (Edward 7th) could yield some very interesting and profitable results.

Both sides of the 32 inch blade etched with battle honours to the Coldstream Guards, one side with the initials and Coldstream Guards badge, the other the cutler's name ("Edward Smith 139 Ebury St SW" - for South West London) and Edward 7th's royal cypher. The blade with patina (darkness) and a little worn, but the etching still very clear, the last double edged section has been period sharpened, so the officer suspected it might be used rather than just worn. The blade is firm in the hilt and sheathes / draws well into the leather field service scabbard. The hilt is in good order but tiny speckles and small patches of rust are present throughout. The fishskin grip and twisted grip wire bindings are complete and in good order. A good investment with tons of opportunity to research for only £500. Further / full sized images available upon request. Please quote item reference number B22 (446).
