George V Royal Artillery Officers Sword

George V Royal Artillery Officers Sword

Code: 11376


A good George V 1821 Pattern Royal Artillery Officers Sword.

A substantial sword by Batson of London. Typical three bar hilt with shagreen grip bound in twistwire and chequered backstrap. 

The 35 inch blade in generally good clean condition, with the usual floral etching, GV crowned cypher, regimental motto "Ubique" field gun, feathered lightning bolts, and "Royal Artillery".

Grip and hilt solid with no movement. Lack of plating overall, but the whole could be cleaned and polished if desired. 

Housed in its leather covered field service scabbard. The bottom section of leather is now missing, revealing the wooden core. However, this has been polished, and you would need to look twice to realise. A good fit, with no splits, and still solid overall.

Overall a good type example, which would improve with some care and attention.

Strictly over 18's only. Photo ID will be required before this item can be dispatched.
