Edward 7th 1892P British Corps Officer's Sword

Sales enquiries

For infantry officer's, the 1892P was replaced in 1895/1897. But Corps officers continued to carry what is said to be the most attractive British army sword ever. What makes this sword unusual is that there is no Corps designation or maker's / retailer's name to the blade, raising the specter it was for a regular army officer who simply did not want the 1895/1897P (hence no maker's / retailer's name as they could not be officially associated with a non-regulation sword). In any event, this is a fine sword and in very good condition.

The 32 inch blade is well etched and in very good condition; some light scuffing but not much. Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard retaining pretty much all gilt. The black fishskin grip is very good, as are the gilt twisted grip wire bindings (one minor wire a little astray, but only a little). The plated steel scabbard in very good condition except for a small patch near the middle suspension ring. The sword sheathes and draws very well. The original sword know it very good.

A really superb condition example of a stunning sword. A show piece and investment for just £700. Please quote item reference number AB03. Further / full sized images upon request. Box 0080-1m (2.006)
