This pattern of sword was replaced in 1912. George V cam to the throne in 1910. So this sword dates from 1910 to 1912. We can not identify the badge to the scabbard; any info welcome.
The 34 5/8 inch blade is in very good condition one side, but with a patina patch over the etched area the other. Blade firm in hilt. The hilt / guard with tarnish and some small rust patches, the later primarily to the rim. The fishskin grip and grip wire bindings in good order. The leather field service scabbard in good order, some scuffing, the chape / drag with some bending, the frog suspension loop gone. The sword sheathes and draws well.
An interesting and good example. Nicely priced at was £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference AE75. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box?
