British Pattern 1897 Infantry Officer’s Sword
A top quality Wilkinson 1897 pattern British infantry officers sword (still current regulation for infantry officers) with a hexagonal proof disc denoting Wilkinson’s best quality. The sword is dated to 1933 and has George V cypher on the hilt and blade. The blade itself is in good condition with some light staining and a few marks but no pitting and some lovely crisp etching. The panel in which a coat of arms or name may be added is blank but the stamped serial number, 63754, may allow the sword to be researched. The spine of the blade also has the ‘made in England’ stamp.
