1912 Patt Wilkinson made ERII British Cavalry
Officer's Sword, sold
In very good condition, a current 1912 pattern British cavalry
officer's sword, ERII (Queen Elizabeth 2nd) by Wilkinson Sword.
In pretty much parade ground condition, a fine 1912 pattern British
cavalry officer's sword, made by Wilkinson, etched to Queen Elizabeth
the 2nd, serial number 91438 for 1967.
It is very rare to find an ERII British cavalry sword from Wilkinson
as not many cavalry officers these mechanized days see the need
for swords, so very few were made. This is in very good condition,
so would make a stunning addition to anyone's collection or a great
present for a serving cavalry / tank regiment officer in one of
Her Majesty's armed forces.
The 35 inch blade is in excellent condition, as it was stored with
a protective grease layer (now removed) so that there are only two
very small patina patches which are in in discreet areas as well,
so they do not detract from the beauty of the blade so much. The
blade is firm in the hilt, the hilt is very good, some good metal
polish may make is more shiny if desired. The black faux fishskin
grip and twisted grip wire bindings are very good. The inside of
the bowl guard has some small rust spots here and there, but not
much / many. The leather sword knot is a little aged and dry and
brokenapart at one point. The leather field service scabbard is
mostly good but the suspension frog loop has cracking to it. But,
overall, a very good sword and in very good condition. Well worth
