Sales enquiries

This sword would probably pass any inspection as is, and would likely appear brand new with a little time and Simichrome metal finishing polish to the hilt. Serial number 107788 for 1977. Engraved to the blade naming lozenge "Lt F W Cumming. Comm. December 1977". Lt Cumming went on to be a Major in 1985; He joined the RMVFR in 1954, the regular corps in April 1956 and passed out as a Marine in August of that year. If desired, his name could be removed by clouded engraving of the lozenge. Suitable for a collector or, indeed, a serving Royal Marine officer.

The 32 51/6 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard very good, a little milky tarnish (would remove with Simichrome), but not too much. Grip / grip wire in very good condition. The leather field service scabbard good, a little age and cracking to the frog suspension loop. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A very nice genuine Wilkinson Sword for only £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference V42 (0981). Further / full sized images available upon request.
