The blade dated to June 1947 (“6 47”), this sword would almost certainly been at both the state funeral of King George VI in 1952, and the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. This sword would likely have stayed in service longer than it did but for the fact Queen Elizabeth II opted for the Sr Edwards crown, where this sword has the Tudor crown of previous monarchs back until and including King Edward VII. Matching serial numbers (S 299) to the scabbard and hilt.
The 34 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard still parade worthy. The sword knot, probably original, in good order, a little grubby. The heavy steel scabbard in very good condition. The sword sheathes and draws well.
Go watch the above grand state / royal funeral and coronation and see if you can spot this sword there! Come on, all that pomp for just was £? (too late, now sold); almost treason your majesty! Please quote item reference AF85. Further / full sized images upon request. Box?
