British P1827 Rifle Regiment Officer’s Sword

Regulation pattern steel "gothic" hilt with the crowned bugle badge of rifle regiments in the center of the guard. Shark skin grip with two sizes of twisted copper wire and steel ferrule at the base; integral knurled steel backstrap. Straight 32 ˝" blade with broad single fuller, lightly etched with foliage and royal emblems; the ricasso etched with "BY WARRANT/*HENRY*/ WILKINSON/PALL MALL/LONDON" overstamped with "I.S.D" on obverse and brass inset "HW" in the middle of an etched 6-pointed star with stamped broad arrow over "I" and the date "1923" on the reverse. The stamped markings over the etching may indicate a later re-issuing of an earlier sword. The undress version of this sword features a steel scabbard, but this is the dress version with a high-quality wood scabbard covered with dark brown leather and featuring a steel throat. Original leather frog and carrying straps with steel fittings. Overall length 38 5/8". Very good complete condition, showing typical wear associated with age and use.
