The 31 1/4 inch blade is etched with presentation script to Gunner Turner, fouled anchor, etc. plus the cutler's details (Army & Navy Co-Operative Society 105 Victoria Street London SW). The blade is in good condition, some patina spots but not too many, the etching still very clear. Blade firm in the hilt, the hilt / guard retaining much original gilt. The black fishskin grip in very good condition, as are the associated twisted grip wire bindings. Original sword know a little aged but compete. The gilt fittings on leather scabbard in good shape. The locking pin mechanism works well. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Bearing in mind this Royal Naval officer's medals are on sale for £4,500.00, our price for his fine sword seem to be truly under priced. A well above average example of this scarce model of sword, complete with presentation etching to this hero sailor giving you more provenance then most, makes this one of the best deals on our site. Please quote item reference G02. Further / full sized images available upon request.
