ERII British Royal Naval Officer's Wilkinson
In very good condition, an ERII (Queen Elizabeth 2nd) British
Royal Naval officer's Wilkinson sword.
In very good condition, suitable as a serving officer's dress sword.
The original officer owner's name etched on the blade but this can
be etched over if desired. Wilkinson Sword serial number 130388
The 31 inch blade is in very good order; there are some slight
scratches / scuff marks and a small amount of etching discoloration,
but it still is stunning. Blade firm the hilt and the locking pin
mechanism works fine. The hilt has virtually all its original gilt
and the fishskin grip along with its associated twisted grip wire
bindings are very good. The sword knot in also very good; one small
wayward thread. The gilt metal fittings and leather scabbard are
very good, some scuff marks (can be fairly easily improved), the
sword sheathes and draws very well.
Excellent value. Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
