  2. re you ex-

    Hello HC - is that pure speculation? Do you have any attributable examples you can cite? I have never seen a VR hilted sword attributed to a newly commissioned officer post 1901 (when Victoria died)....

    Thank you Will. So am I right (in this example) that a family sword would / could have a VR blade rehilted into an EVII hilt? But not a VR hilt for a newly commissioned officer?

    Paul, you were trying to help yourself by sales pitching me a sword when I had not expressed any interest in buying one.
    That, with respect, does not allow you to go on the offensive with insults...

    The fake is a well known Malaysian diplomats mameluke; why the Chinese chose to fake that variant, I have no idea. Try cleaning the etching; it will come off!
  14. Cursive V under crown royal monogram / blade cypher

    This is on a clearly early 19C cavalry sword.
    I have seen this monogram before. I thought I remembered it was an English firearms mark, but it is not. Then I thought, "I know, it is Dutch"; wrong....
  15. Would an officer's sword like this be bought by the Board of Ordnance?

    Thank you Robert, Mark, Dmitry, David, Martin
    Here is a photo of the sword.

    Mark, I saw the S&G Harvey mark on a bayonet; it was nothing like the "SKG Harvey" mark on this sword though. I tried...

    Thank you both.

    Can anyone tell me whether;
    a) The Board of Ordnance mark looks right?
    b) The running fox mark looks right?
    c) The name, whether it is "S&G Harvey" or "SKG Harvey"?
    d) Whether...

  19. Unusual sword markings 1. C5 over 654

    Hello
    Has anyone come across this sytle of sword marking before?
