    Hi Steve,
    Borrowed this original French 1882 Cavalry Trooper sword to take some photos and post here. This one is a plain three bar hilt as shown in the example page I posted earlier. It also has the same tip as that example. It has a wooden handle that has had the wire removed. This example has a second smaller fuller close to the spine of the blade.
    Ralph.

    I believe yours is an American copy of this made during the civil war for the Union forces.

    Thank you once again Ralph. I like the exposed
    wood grip on her. There are slight differences,
    but they are very closely related.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    it or where it may have originated, if anyone has an idea.
    There are no markings on it and the spearpoint tip is
    unusual, which leads me to think it must be
    a European import.........
    Hello Steve, Assuming that the overall dimensions are what I would expect, unmarked would be my guess also as an export version of the French Model 1822 possibly of German manufacture(?). With the marked conventional swords being of course the French Model 1822. Followed by the U.S. Model 1840 clone, and the rarely seen fully marked German clone that was probably a 'trials' (experimental) type that was tested prior to the adoption of the (German) M1852 cavalry saber. Best Regards, Fred
