Sales enquiries

Apart from some lifted plating / rust spots to the edge of the hilt, this sword is in very good condition; certainly a candidate for the perfect WW2 British infantry officer's sword if you have the hilt re-plated. Wilkinson serial number 66349 for 1937, the blade bears the original owner's initials, "R. N. W." This stands for "R N Wilson" of the East Lancashire Regiment (copy of Wilkinson sales ledger provided).

The 32 1/2 inch blade is in very good condition, some aging, not much, and is firm in the hilt. The hilt with some plating loss and light rusting to one side / edge, otherwise very good. The black fishskin grip has lost a little of its colour, but is in good order, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. The field leather scabbard is also very good. The sword sheathes and draws very well.

Please quote item reference number F49 (909). Further / full sized images available upon request.
