George V British Rifle Regiment Officer's
Presentation Sword, sold
In very good overall condition, a King George 5th British rifle
regiment officer's presentation sword, dated 28th June 1926.
A lovely sword in great condition, etched on the blade "Presented
to R. S. M., S. E. Ings By the W.O's, and Sergts of the Rifle Depot".
We have not researched Regimental Sergeant Major Ings, so there
is plenty of scope for this.
The 32 1/2 inch blade with presentation script, George V cypher,
slung, bugle and sword cutler's name "Pulford & Sons 65
St James's Street London SW1" is in very good condition for
its age and firm in the hilt. The hilt nice and bright, a little
scuffing / light scratching but not too much. The black fishskin
grip and associated twisted grip wire bindings are very good. Complete
with original black leather sword knot. Plated steel scabbard overall
good. The sword sheathes and draws well enough.
A very good item with full provenance for just £500. Please
quote item reference G57 (964). Further / full sized images available
