George VI / WW2 British Infantry Officer's
Sword, VGC, Sold
In very good parade condition, a George VI / WW2 British Infantry
This sword is in parade condition and might suit a serving officer
if they are happy to wear a sword with a previous monarch's cypher
to the guard and blade. There is no maker's name to the blade indicating
it is a WW2 sword. The black rifle regiment sword knot appears to
be a later addition.
The 32 1/2 inch blade is in very good condition, the etching very
vivid, firm in the hilt. The guard overall very good, a few small
rust spots to the edge, not many / much. The faux fishskin grip
in very good condition, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. The
leather scabbard with some scuffing around the chape is in overall
good condition. The sword sheathes and draws well.
A well above average example. Yours for £? (too late, now
sold) . Please quote item reference Q98 (0443). Further / full sized
images available upon request.
