    Hi Jerry,

    Yes, on the French passionmilitaria.com forum there's a seemingly esteemed collector of pre-revolutionary sabre who labels it as a "superb weapon in impeccable state and perfect...

    Quoted from the other thread about the wiring of this sword.

    Probably you're correct Will and is the wire replaced. The wire should be a brass one undependent of its tightness, not an iron one....

    Concerning the "problem" of the wiring on the grip I can add the following information.

    While one encounters mostly twined double brass strands, on revolutionary sabres also both single and double...

    Not always, Will.
    E.g. on the Chasseur à Cheval 1790, both single and double strands (twined and parallel) are encounterd, but usually a brass wire.
    Although iron wire also exists, especially on...
  5. Revolutionary Sabre de Cavalerie An IV for inspection.

    I think this is a good revolutionary Sabre de Cavalerie An IV.

    It started in my opinion as a Sabre de Cavalerie 1784 as the hilt has the old poinçon of François-Antoine Bisch of the Manufacture de...

    I cannot get specific information about this.
    I fear that the past 2 months I have tortured the seller a bit too much with repeated questions for photos of the poinçons and other.

    That could ofcourse be anothe possibility as it doesn't look like the brass used for the hilt and the scabbard. Why the use a darker metal?

    So, that's why I don't receive update-emails for threads I subscribed to any longer?

    And also that's why I couldn't change my email address because I never received the...
  10. French revolutionary sabre: from which metal could this hilt wiring have been made?

    I would expect a brass wiring on the hilt, but this wire has darkened. Could this be brass or is it iron. Any thoughts?

    Sabre de Cuirassier An XIII

    I bought a few cavalry sabres this year, but this one certainly is not easy to find: a Sabre de Cuirassier An XI/XIII with original An XI heavy metal scabbard.

    Thanks Will & Michael, that's exactly the information I also received at a French forum: not Premier Empire.

    Thanks Ivan & Jerry. I received this information also on a French forum where they liked this sabre very much.
  16. French cavalry officer's sabre type 1784 with garde de bataille for evaluation.

    This Napoleonic cavalry officer's sabre type 1784 with garde de bataille look very convincing for an amateur like me. The only fault I can find is that the scabbard's leather is brownish while it is...

    I already gathered that the blade is made in Potsdam and that th scabbard is marked with the poinçon of Jean Cazamajou, reviseur at Versailles from 1803 until August 1806 and from January 1809 until...

    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...
