SWORDS FOR SALE

1892P British Infantry Officer's Sword VR

Description: This is a very rare sword as a majority of the swords of this pattern were re-hilted when the 1895P sword was introduced. Note this is NOT a RAMC or RCT sword.

The blade and the hilt are in excellent condition: there are just a few minor areas of tarnishing to the blade and it retains a majority of its original polish. The etching is sharp and clear with the VR cypher to both sides of the blade. The hilt has all if its original shagreen intact and the wiring is present and correct. Very slight traces of gilding remain on the guard which is undamaged with no knock or bends.

The scabbard is complete with both mounting rings present, it has a very fine layer of corrosion overall but this should be easy to remedy. There are a couple of dings near the chape.

This sword was retailed by Flights though the brass plug in the ricasso is, I think, an indication that this is a Wilkinson made and supplied ‘outfitters’ quality sword.

Provenance: None known

Price: Final sale price withheld.
