WW1 / GV British Army Officer's Sword, sold
In good condition (slight bending to the hilt), a WW1 / GV British
Army Officer's Sword marked to the Army, Navy & Co-Operative
Slightly pronounced inward curvature of the outer section may be
by design or by wear / accident. Most people would not notice this,
but we have.
The 32 3/4 inch blade has been period replated (the brass proof
slug has not been over-plated), so the etching is very feint. But
the blade is very good and firm in the hilt. The nickel plated hilt
is in good condition as is the grip and twisted grip wire. Leather
sword knot is aged but sound. The field service leather scabbard
is good. The sword sheathes and draws well.
Very nice looking sword. Just £? (too late, now sold). Please
quote item reference R99 (0604). Further / full sized images available
