WW1/GV British Army Officer's Sword &
Scabbard, London Made, Sold
In fairly good condition, a WW1 / GV British Army Officer's Sword
& Scabbard, London Made.
No maker's / retailer's name etched to the ricasso, so probably
1917/1918. "London made" to the spine, "555"
to the obverse.
The 32 1/3 inch blade is in quite good condition, the etching a
little feint, not much in the way of rust / patina, firm in the
hilt. The steel hilt with some light damage / bending but overall
good. The faux fishskin grip in good order; the twisted grip wire
bindings good but a couple of lesser strands slightly astray. The
plated steel scabbard in sound condition, some age / rust spots.
The sword sheathes and draws well but get nearly stuck when fully
Good WW1 example. £? (too late, now sold). Please quote
