British Pattern 1895 Infantry Officer’s Sword

An 1895 pattern infantry officer’s sword, dating to between 1895 and 1897. This example is missing its scabbard and in average condition, with some skrinkage and loss to the shagreen. Despite this, the blade is bright, with most of the etching visible and is solid in the hilt. The proof slug may indicate that this was made by Wilkinson for an outfitter, as this was the symbol they used for their trade blades. 1895 pattern swords are not very common, as they were only being made for 2 years.
