Very Good Wilkinson ERII British Army Officer's Sword

Sales enquiries

Serial number 100624 for 1972, we believe this current pattern / monarch British / Canadian / Australian / New Zealand infantry officer's sword is just within parade ground condition, and would almost certainly improve further if required.

The 32 1/2 inch (7/8 inch width at ricasso) is in very good condition, some slight streaking from being drawn / sheathed, virtually spotless, firm in the hilt. The hilt with the slightest of frosting (aging) but not very noticeable and which would, we believe, clean up to a brilliant shine with some good metal polish and a bit of careful time. The grip is all very good, a little cleaning might be desirable for perfection. The leather field scabbard has some small scuffs which would probably (shoe) polish out. The sword sheathes and draws well enough, not as tight as Victorian era swords but then, alas, some technology / skills do not improve with time.

Still, a lovely sword. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Please quote item reference number
