ERII British Infantry Officer's Sword, Sold
In very good condition, an ERII British infantry officer's sword.
In case you are looking for a sword for a serving officer, the
hilt is in parade ground condition, the rest of the sword is very
good. The etching is a little feint, as the blade appears to have
been re-plated. The grip wire is a little astray in places. The
leather field service scabbard has signs of use. It may well be
usable by a serving officer with a little TLC.
The 32 inch blade is firm in the hilt. The sword sheathes and
draws well. We believe this sword was UK made, because it has a
good quality fishskin grip, but can not be 100% sure. We have used
a leather balsam on the leather to enrich and preserve it. A very
nice looking sword. Further / full sized images available upon request.
