    Your sword seems to be made in the general form of an Austrian Cavalry saber. However, it does not seem to match any of the official forms in the small details. Perhaps something made by Horster for foreign sales? The markings and the blade form are not Austrian that I can tell.

    Perhaps this will steer you in the right direction.

    It's the Swiss cav troopers pattern of 1867. The cross stamp and "Vaud" are the clues, aside from the form itself. See this discussion: https://sbg-sword-forum.forums.net/t...troopers-sabre
