British Pattern 1912 Cavalry Officer’s Sword
A good example of the 1912 pattern cavalry officer’s sword, by Wilkinson and dating to WW1. This example also features the hexagonal ‘best quality’ proof slug, meaning that extra attention was paid to the manufacture, including extra detailing to the blade etching. The sword is service sharpened, but unfortunately there is no name recorded in the Wilkinson records against this sword’s blade number. Overall the sword is in good condition, with most of the etching still clear and a bright blade. The whole construction is still rock solid. There is some speckling to the nickel plating of the guard, but generally it is very good for the age and could be polished. The shagreen and silver grip wire is in good condition.
