ERII British Infantry Officer' Wilkinson Sword, Scabbard, Knot & Belts

Sales enquiries

In very good (parade ground or near parade ground) condition, an ERII British Infantry Officer' Wilkinson Sword and Scabbard, complete with Knot & Belts. Serial number 110344 for 1980. Even if you considered this sword was not already in parade ground condition, some TLC (metal cleaning polish, etc.) would likely make this sword very nearly as new. It should be possible to research the original officer owner if desired by paying a £10 fee to Royal Armouries to research the Wilkinson sales ledger.

The 32 1/8 inch blade is in very good condition save for some staining and rubbing. Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard very good, as is the black faux fishskin grip and associated twisted grip wire bindings. Leather field service scabbard in very good order but the frog suspension strap has age / cracking. The sword knot with some age but overall good. The straps and belt with age and wear but in worn good condition.

A very good sword despite being 40 odd years old. Ideal for either a collector or a serving officer. Yours for £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference U76 (0919). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
