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.
This has been confirmed French trademark.
I believe yours is an American copy of this made during the civil war for the Union forces.
