ERII British Royal Naval Officer's Sword

Sales enquiries

Not maker marked. In VGC, a good Queen Elizabeth 2nd etched Royal Navy officer's sword with pleasing and also slightly unique eggshell finish blade (this was made like this, and the finish is very attractive). A few little signs of wear, but pretty much in parade ground condition (could use a little careful cleaning / maintenance).

The 31 inch blade is well grey etched, a little spot of rust along the spine but hardly noticeable. Blade firm in hilt. The hilt retaining much gilt finish. The fishskin grip appears very much to be real fishskin (most ERII swords have faux fishskin) and is in very good condition (some slight use evident). The grip wires a little tarnished (can be cleaned), one minor strand a little astray (can easily be reglued back into place). The folding guard a little loose and the pin that holds it together protrudes a tiny amount (may well always have done). Folding guard locates onto the retaining pin on the top locket of the scabbard well. Sword knot overall very good. The leather and gilt metal scabbard also very good. The sword sheathes and draws well but the lining at the throat could benefit from a spot of glue (one internal side lining at the top is very slightly astray, but nothing serious).

A nice sword for either a collector or serving officer. Our price is only £(too late - sold! but we can divulge the original sellling price for a small fee). Please quote reference number O71 (1387). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
