    Help with sword identification.

    I was asked to see if I could identify this one. Any help is appreciated.

    RF... mark of the French Republic. I can't see how long the blade is but I'd guess a French cutlass before Napoleon's coronation as Emperor.

    Sorry but that's all the pictures I have. Was able to get the measurements overall 39 3/4" with the blade length of 33 3/4"

    French revolution period or earlier Dragoon Sabre is my guess..... But don't bet money on it, it's only a guess.

    There are several with this hilt style. The most likely candidate has a curved blade and fuller. 112 b page 123 of Des Sabres EtDes Epees by Michel Petard.
    Sabres des chasseurs a cheval, 1789, 1790 period.
