    Circa 1940 Royal Navy Kings Crown 1827 Pattern Chief Petty Officers Swords

    ~ Circa 1940 Royal Navy Kings Crown 1827 Pattern Chief Petty Officers Sword ~


    The sword has the characteristic doves head hilt, unengraved blade and black fish skin grip. The blade is not manufacturer named but bears a proof star. C.P.O. swords are of course rarer than the Officers equivalent.

    The gilt brass hilt bears the Kings crown.

    It is complete with its scabbard, bullion sword knot and sword belt by J. Gieve and Sons of the High Street, Portsmouth.

    I purchased it off a gentleman who himself purchase it off the original owner 40 years ago at the Seamans Hospital, Greenwich.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The sword length is 37 inches (94cm) and the blade is 31.5 inches (80cm). In its scabbard it is 37.5 inches (95cm).

    ~ Condition ~

    The blades edge is free from nicks, it has some darkened oxidisation patches. The grip is complete, a few wires are little loose. The guard is in good order with a firm safety catch.

    The sword knot is oxidised but with minimal fraying.

    The sword belt is in very good tidy condition with excellent bullion work. The gilding on the buckle is worn.

    The scabbard is free from dents, the leather quite worn though the stitching is solid.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £18 or the sword can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard....Read full description
