ERII Wilkinson British Royal Air Force Officer's
In overall good condition, a scarce ERII (Queen Elizabeth 2nd)
Wilkinson RAF officer's sword.
A scarce item, a British RAF officer's sword, Wilkinson Sword made,
serial number 103992 for 1975.
The 32 1/2 inch blade is in very good condition except for a number
of small nicks to the cutting edge of the blade. Well etched and
firm in the hilt. The hilt has dulled a little and there i some
gilt loss to the top most part of the RAF cypher. The fishskin grip
and twisted grip wire bindings are in very good order (grip a little
crazing one side). The leather and gilt steel fittings scabbard
is mostly good but slides off the blade very easily. A nice bonus
is the original sword knot. Could be aesthetically improved with
a little TLC.
Well worth the price tag as these swords are in high demand and
difficult to come by. Please quote reference B51 (516). Full sized
/ further images available upon request.
