Mint Wilkinson ERII British Royal Corps of Signals Officer's Sword, both scabbards

Sales enquiries

I do not think this sword has been worn very much if at all. Where it is not mint, it just needs a little metal cleaning polish; the only flaw I can see is some plating loss to the upper suspension ring of the steel scabbard. This sword would be the pride and joy of any serving officer. It should be noted, one of the two attribution / presentation panels has been etched with the original owner's details; "566417 A G C Adams Berkshire Yeomanry" though, of course, that etching could be over etched to remove (hide) it if required. As Wilkinson Sword sadly are no more, this is one of the very rare chances to get a current monarch "Wilkie" in pristine condition.

The 32 1/2 inch blade, serial number 122614 for 1992, is in exceptional, mint condition, just in need of a little cleaning here and there, etched with ERII royal cypher and emblem / motto of the Royal Corps of Signals, Wilkinson logo and named officer (can be removed by over-etching). Blade is firm in the hilt; the hilt in minto condition to the face, could use a little more cleaning to the inside of the bowl. The faux black fishskin grip is in mint condition also, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. Both scabbards are in mint condition, the steel dress scabbard could use a little more metal polish perhaps and the top suspension ring has a small area of plating loss, the leather scabbard's frog loop showing slight age cracks. The sword sheathes and draws perfectly into both scabbards. A true investment. Please quote reference number C48 (659). Full sized / further images are available upon request.
