Etched to George 5th and Armfield Ltd Birmingham, this sword was there made between 1911 and 1936.
The 33 inch blade is in very good condition, some wear, some speckles, but nothing major. Blade firm in hilt. The steel guard / hilt very good for age. The faux fishskin grip and twisted grip wire bindings very good. The field service leather scabbard very good, some scrapes / wear, small bending to chape / drag, the leather suspension frog loop worn and cracked, but above average condition wise. The sword sheathes and draws well.
Very good example in very good condition. Well worth the was £? (too late, now sold) price tag. Please quote item reference X50. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 1298-121x19x16 (2.202).
