British ERII Royal Navy Officer's Wilkinson
In good overall condition, a British ERII Royal Navy Officer's
Wilkinson Sword, Knot, Scabbard and Case.
Serial number 106473 for 1977, this sword has rust patches towards
the tip and some corrosion to the lower scabbard fitting which prevent
it from being parade ground condition, though someone like Crisp
& Sons could refurbish it, or some careful bronze and silver
paint maybe able to adequately disguise it.
The 31 inch blade is in good condition except for said rust patches,
and firm in the hilt. The gilt hilt in very good condition, as is
the grip and associated twisted grip wire bindings. The scabbard
is good, some fading to the leather, some corrosion to the chape.
Sword know and all weather case generally very good for age.
Could be made to shine again. Yours to try for £? (too late,
now sold). Please quote item reference AE52 (0900). Further / full
sized images available upon request.
