Royal Navy Officer's Sword by Wilkinson ER II Cypher 1972

Description: A nice example of the current pattern Royal Navy officer’s sword. This sword is numbered 100279 which puts the date of manufacture as 1972.

The hilt is in good order with no knocks or scrapes; the ray skin grip is undamaged and complete together with the wiring. Traces of gilding remain on the guard and backstrap and the sword knot is present. The folding portion of the guard is un-engraved.

The blade is beautifully etched, displaying the quality of finish for which Wilkinsons were renowned. There is slight tarnishing and discolouration to the blade overall and some very slight pitting near the point (this might be polished out). ER II cypher to one side of the blade with RN fouled anchor to the other, Wilkinsons emblem and armourers marks to opposite sides of the ricasso.

This sword would be a fine addition to any collection or, following refurbishment, could be returned to parade ground condition. Wilkinsons are no more and swords such as this one are becoming increasingly hard to find; buy now and secure this one for the future!
