Virtually mint condition Wilkinson made (1980) British Royal Naval
officer's sword and scabbard, ERII, formerly Britannia Royal Naval
In virtually mint condition, this Wilkinson made Royal Navy officer's
sword has the serial number 110283 and marked to the inside of the
folding guard "B R N C" (Britannia Royal Naval College).
The etching still clear and fine with area for the next owner's
name to be etched, the 30.75 inch blade as with the sword as a whole
in virtually mint condition. I understand the sword was bought for
the college to be awarded to an newly commissioned officer but for
some reason never was.
The fishskin is clean and bright but for one tiny spot which probably
would clean off. The gilt is in absolute perfect order. The folding
guard works well and locks into position on the scabbard as it should.
With Wilkinson Sword now out of business yet so rightfully revered,
this is a wonder opportunity to give a newly commissioned officer
something very special and yet sadly no longer available, except
