Description

***SOLD***

Offered is a George V era (1911-1935) 1897 Pattern British Army Officer’s presentation sword, as worn by an Infantry Officer.

The sword features a wire bound fish skin grip, mounted onto an all chequered back strap and pierced bowl guard, featuring the royal cypher of King George V. The nickel finish overall is excellent to outer bowl, overall immaculate condition.

The blade has battle & laurel leaf etchings running 1/2 down the length of both sides of the 84 cm straight blade. Very good etched royal arms and motto’s running along both sides of the blade, including the crowned royal cypher. The leather service scabbard is in excellent condition. Generally, an immaculately well cared for sword, which would be a great addition to your collection. Because of the overall condition, this could easily be used by a serving Australian Army Officer, as this is still the current pattern used. Overall length: 101 cm.
