WW1 era British Royal Artillery Officers
Sword & Scabbard, Sold
In overall good condition, a WW1 era British Royal Artillery Officers
Sword & Scabbard.
No maker's or retailer's name etched to the ricasso, so likely
a mid-WW1 sword.
The 32 1/2 inch blade is in very good condition but with some patina
patches. Blade firm in the hilt. The steel 3 bar hilt has some age
/ tarnish but is very good. Black fishskin grip and twisted steel
grip wires in good condition. Plated steel scabbard with tarnish
and rust spots / patches but good; one blade grip screw missing.
The sword sheathes and draws quite well.
Nice, honest WW1 era sword. Very nicely priced at £? (too
late, now sold). Please quote item reference V28 (0973). Further
/ full sized images available upon request.
