Ignore the larger "9. T. P. 5. 72." markings for Train Battalion 9, Proviant (Provisions) 5, Weapon 72; this sabre was relegated to them at a later date. The original markings on the crossguard are "29 R 2" which are for the 2nd Rhineland (Landwehr) Cavalry Regiment, weapon number 29, so this sabre is post Waterloo (as the Rhineland Landwehr were created in November 1815. The scabbard is original to the sabre as it also is marked "29 R 2" and "9. T. P. 5. 72.". The blade spine is marked "29" so the blade is the original also. There is also a stamp on the scabbard drag which is probably for the maker (probably Clauberg).

The 31 15/18 inch blade is very slightly shorter than other M1811's but appears to be the original length (no sign of shortening); variations can and did occur from maker to maker. The blade is in very good condition with a couple of slight nicks to the forward cutting edge (period and hardly noticeable). Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard very good, as is the grooved hardwood grip. The heavy steel scabbard in very good shape. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A well above average example of this highly impressive sabre; well priced at £1100. Please quote item reference AC98. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0378-1m (2.693).
