ERII British Rifle Brigade Named Officer's
Wilkinson Sword, sold
In very good, near / even parade ground condition, an ERII British
Rifle Brigade / Royal Green Jackets Named Officer's Wilkinson Sword.
Serial number 83564 for 1961, etched with the badge and Waterloo
battle honours for the Rifle Brigade, this is the former property
of Captain Michael Arnison-Newgass of the Royal Green Jackets.
The 32 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition with the etching
still vivid. The blade is firm in the hilt. The hilt also in very
good condition, some slight flecks appearing (a good polish such
as Simichrome may well vastly improve these). The black possibly
faux fishskin grip and associated grip wire bindings in very good
condition. The plated steel scabbard very good, some specks as with
the hilt. The sword sheathes and draws well.
Lovely sword with the potential to make immaculate with some TLC
and Simichrome. A great but, just £? (too late, now sold).
Please quote item reference number W36 (1145). Further / full sized
pictures available upon request.
