The 31 1/4 inch blade with the very distinctive Edward 8th Royal Cypher, ropes, fouled anchor, etc. is in overall good condition, some rust spots and wear, not too much. Blade firm in the hilt which retains quite a bit of gilt. Hilt and grip in good condition. Folding guard works fine and locates properly onto the scabbard pin. Scabbard overall good to very good. Sword sheathes and draws well. Sword knot generally good but a little grubby and frayed a little here and there.

For an Edward 8th naval officer's sword is a very good price. Please quote item reference number F65 (893). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
