ERII King's Own Scottish Borderers Field
Officer's Wilkinson Sword, sold
In good condition, a scarce Scottish infantry field officer's
sword for the former King's Own Scottish Borderers.
Marked to Wilkinson Sword, but the serial number and NATO part
number on either side of the ricasso have been removed (you can
just make out some numbers).
The 32 1/4 inch blade is aged somewhat, with patina and wear, though
still good, and firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard good (with Nisi
Dominus Frustra / castle badge), some wear / aging. The grip good,
the twisted grip wire bindings good but some movement one side.
There is no scabbard, but these may still be bought fairly easily.
A great buy at just £(too late! But we can tell you the selling
price for a small fee). Please quote item reference O11 (1346).
