That is a nice one friend. I have always liked Hussar items.
I can't help much but to say that, that is a very nice sword.
Nicely done blued panels.

I was addicted to the "Hokey-Pokey" but I've turned
great sword very nice.
It is a very nice regimentally marked private purchase version of the M1889 pattern cavalry sword for wear off duty. With the unit history going back to 1758 it of course is much later and very likely circa WW I vintage or a little earlier (as has already been commented on). Which was a period when the M1889 more or less became a universal patten cavalry sword for many German cavalry formations (and states as some other national armies also did as the role/mission of the cavalry was being transformed).
