    Osborn and Gunby Portuguese Napoleonic Officers Saber?

    Hello! Took a chance on this interesting but somewhat damaged Osborn and Gunby Officers cavalry saber. As it mentions the prince regent I must imagine it dates 1811-20 and the Portugese coat of arms must mean it was made for a Portuguese officer, likely during the Penninsula campaign? Any more info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!

    Beautiful sword, I bet you're glad you took a chance. Any plans to do any restoration?

    Man, that a NICE sword. It crys for just a little TLC to remove the active rust. Nice Catch!
