    About this item

    Civil Service Volunteer Rifles Officers Sword.

    The 32.5 inch blade retailed by "Hobson and Sons, 1,3&5 Lexington Street, Golden Square, London, W." although the sword itself is likely made by Pillin.

    The blade is etched with the original owners initials "J.M.S." along with the regimental motto "Civil Service Vol Rifles" within a scroll. The blade is also etched with the usual floral designs, swags, the royal coat of arms, and the crowned cypher of King Edward VII.

    The blade has some areas of staining, but no rust or pitting to the blade.

    1827 Pattern Rifle officers steel hilt is in good condition. with no dents or knocks. It has been cleaned, and polished bright. There is some discolouration to the interior of the guard as one may expect. Domed pommel with chequered backpiece. The grip is bound in shagreen and brass wire, and is free from loss. 

    The whole sword is completely as found, and would improve greatly from some sympathetic cleaning. 

    Housed in its steel dress scabbard, with twin suspension rings. This is a very tight fit. The whole scabbard stained and in need of a clean and polish.

    Overall condition is good, the sword is untouched, some minor old staining, and would benefit from a good clean to bring it back to collectors standard.

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