    Can someone identify this manufacturer on the hilt of a sabre de chasseur à cheval 1790. Also present on the hilt is the coq poinçon. On the ricasso one sees the faisceaux de licteur together with...

    Thanks for the link, Will. However, I'm afraid of these auctions as I'm not able to examine the details. From afar I can see there are two poinçons, probably Klingenthal, on the ricasso of this sabre...

    Thanks for the compliment, Niall.
    I'm from Belgium (Dutch speaking Flanders) so should be able to read, write and speak French. In practice, it is reading with careful attention, writing very slowly...

    Actually, I have been looking at this sabre for some time now and am convinced that it’s a copy. The poinçons present don’t even resemble that of François-Georges Bisch for the period 1783-1791.

    Always suspicious nowadays, I would like to ask your opinion on this rare saber.
    Also as always, it looks very convincing. Do you see any red flags?

  16. Another US M1860 Cavalry Saber for evaluation and (dis)approval.

    What are your thoughts on this US M1860 Cavalry Saber. It is supposed to be an Ames from 1863. Many thanks for your review!

    Yes, interesting and that’s probably why in 1854/1855 the official edict came that ordered to finally convert the remaining An XIII sabres to spear point.
    Before that date probably it was...

    Hi Michael,

    I've come to the (same) conclusion that the rack numbering has something to do with the introduction of the 1816 scabbard. I searched the archives of Bertrand Malvaux and other dealers...

  23. When was the model 1816 scabbard for the French cuirassier saber An XIII introduced?

    I understand that the Napoleonic sabre de cuirassier An XI was accompanied by a heavy metal scabbard model An XI.

    Nowadays the An XI/XIII cuirassier one encounters have usually a lighter model...
