Title 1897 pattern George V infantry officer's sword
Nationality British
Period c 1914
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This fine sword has its parade scabbard and virtually 100% of its nickel silver finish with a little minor rust spotting to the inside of the guard. It is proof stamped for Charles Reeves (ie the maker), who worked from 1902-38.


Although the sword is common enough, to find a George V example in this condition, with near enough factory finish to the blade, is increasingly uncommon.

I'd just like to thank you for the SS Buckle, this has to be one of the best items I have yet and am very happy with it.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
