    Hi Orang..the sword appears to be an officers sword from the Imperial period. It also is stripped down to the bone as nothing is left of the grip and gilding is completely gone. Blde is in Bad shape..and deeply rusted. It almost has the characteristics of a Luftwaffe Generals sword from the 1930s...but it is not this type of sword. Some of the Imperial Sword collectors will be along shortly..and give you a detailed answer what this sword once was. Regards Larry

    It looks late 18th or early 19th century to me, its similar to a British officers 1796 pattern dress sword.

    No of course it isnt, but that need not be original to the sword. In any case I am not an expert, just making a general observation as to the style of the sword.

    was not a critique.
    just making a general observation too.

    returning thread , not lacking corrosion pits on pommel???
    the pas dŽane broken along not across???
    the pas dŽane intact has not a very bad way junction with the quillon???
    the blade of the sword and pommel is the same piece???

    observations of an not expert too.

    Not sure that is a wellding mark!
    I think it is a original "dent" to the item, that needs to fit into the scabbard.
