In good condition, an ERII British Army General’s Mameluke by Wilkinson Sword.
Serial number 91432 for 1967. We have been advised by Royal Armouries that the Wilkinson sales ledger states this sword was sold to the “W/O” which, although out of date in terminology, we take to mean the War Office (Ministry of Defense).
The 31 1/2 inch blade is in good condition but has been replated, so the etching is very feint. Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt in very good condition but missing a grip rosette. The ivorine (faux ivory) grip in good condition but for a hairline crack. The correct sword knot in good condition, a little wear but not much. The steel (lower ranking general staff) scabbard in very good condition. The mameluke draws and sheathes well.
