    South Germany around 1750, grenadier or fusilier, probably officer.

    My sympathies, Will. Hopefully you will finally get your sword, but looks like in our time of tariffs and border controls international postages became less and less reliable.

    You can find small swords of similar quality on antique auctions (like Bonhams, Hermann Historica etc) 2.5-3 times cheaper. But it will take time.
