I dont like to make pronouncements on weapons authenticity without having them in my hand. However the Wilkinson logo is not typical of that normally encountered , There should be a 'star with brass centre' proof mark on the ricasso and I would expect the blade to be decorated with foliar patterns Also ALL Wilkinson swords are numbered . A lot of copies of Wilkinson swords came out of India in the 1970s / 80s mostly retailed through a well known British firm in the Midlands.

Pictures of markings , numbering and decoration of a genuine sword of your pattern are given .
