    This one is after 1830 or so. We would have to see the maker under the washer and the top of the ricasso.

    Glad to help !! These configuration is the variant bought by Prussia, in the 1830's to replace the worn out Napoleonic era sabers.

    The marks indicate it was issued to the Landwehr Ulans, then handed down to the Artillery Support Troops, fairly typical for these weapons...
