WW2 / George VI Rifle Regiment Officer's Sword

Sales enquiries

With no maker's name to the ricasso, this sword was probably bought through a retailer actually during WW2, when such detail was not important.



The 32 1/4 inch blade is in good condition, a bit aged and scuffed, but the etching still nice and clear. The blade is firm in the hilt, which itself is in good condition. The fishskin grip a little aged but good; the twisted grip wire also good but a lesser strand missing (one turn only). The plated steel scabbard has lost some plating and gained some light rust, but remains sound. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A nice sword at a nicer; £325. Please quote item reference R22. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0495-1.18 (2.092).
