    British 1827 pattern, but unknown cartouche

    Hi there everyone,

    Iím helping someone out with a sword they have. Itís general form is the British 1827 pattern rifle regiment, but I canít seem to track down an identification on the cartouche in the guard. Has anyone seen an example of this before?

    I realize that this style was also exported to other countries, could it be that? A private militia? Fraternal?

    The pipe back blade dates it to roughly 1827-1845ish. Found in Saint Andrews, New Brunswick, Canada.

    Thanks for the assistance.

    Matt

    These are the pics they sent me:

    It's for His Imperial Majesty Dom Pedro II, Constitutional Emperor and Perpetual Defender of Brazil, who took the title in 1831 and kept it until 1889. So, a Brazilian military sword.

    Wow, that’s amazing Mark, thank you! I half expected that nobody would recognize it since I could not find it in any of my books or online.

    Thanks again and I’ll pass the info along.
