ERII British Army Officer's (Wilkinson) Sword,
In good condition, an Elizabeth 2nd (ERII) 1897 pattern British
army / infantry officer's sword, by Wilkinson.
Serial number 97779 for 1970, possibly just outside parade ground
condition / potential due to the small amount of tiny "crazing"
to the hilt. But nonetheless in very good order, a Queen Elizabeth
2nd / ERII British army officer's sword, scabbard and suspension
The 32 1/2 inch (7/8 inch width at ricasso) is in good to very
good condition, some patina / wear but not much, and is firm in
the hilt. The hilt has some of the slight small crazing of the plating;
the plating is still there but there are tiny little wiggly lines
under it here and there; this is the stage before plating loss;
it can be maintained but can not be improved, unless the hilt is
replated. The black faux fishskin grip and twisted grip wire bindings
are in very good condition, the fishskin a little stained but would
clean up if required. The sword sheathes and draws very well. The
leather field scabbard is in good condition, the suspension belts
aged and cracked.
Still, a nice sword to have, perhaps even by a serving officer.
Well priced. Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
