    Hello Michael, My immediate recollection is that all of the EM/government issue British 1796 heavy and light cavalry swords that come to mind at the moment were marked in one manner or another, with a number of them also having unit markings. And that during the period of the occupation of Solingen by the French, production of French pattern swords seems to have been absorbed by either the government or French outlets. That said, pre-occupation private purchase 1796 Officer’s swords by German makers are not uncommon, and while sometimes hard to pin down, swords for the Yeomanry and possibly some others are sometimes also in the mix. Best Regards, Fred

    Hey Michael,
    I hope your relocation goes well!
    I know all about it, we just moved as well. But not a cross country; just around the block.

    That sword you just showed is a beauty! A nice well finished detail.
    Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!
