WW2 era (George VI) British Infantry Officer's Sword

Sales enquiries

Well made with a crown proved slug but no maker's / retailer's name etched to the ricasso / forte, this is almost certainly a mid-WW2 sword.

The 32 1/4 inch blade is generally very good, a few patina spots, some wear, firm in the hilt. The hilt with some plating loss, especially to the edge, with some resultant light rust. The fishskin grip with wear, which shows it was regularly held (though not in battle); the twisted grip wire bindings are generally good but some lesser strand turns a tiny, tiny bit astray. The browned steel scabbard is generally good, some small rust patches. The sword catches as it sheathes unless you point it towards the back of the scabbard, draws well when sheathed properly.

A good WW2 example. Under-prices at £325. Please quote item reference AC30. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0239-1.18 (2.364).
