Scabbard looks similar to a British cavalry type and missing the mouth, still has value.Would be interested in seeing a closeup of the scabbard drag as it doesn't quite match 1821, 1853p drags.

Norman I've owned two 1821p LC troopers by Sargant , identical to the Osborn pictured with washer and tang peened over it. Also marked A/4. Both had 33 inch blades and were for the American market.

Thanks Corrado the pommel and peen match my sword exactly. Great to know that it's a Prussian sword, I don't like the "Continental" label that says not known. Looks impressive with its brass scabbard.

Interesting projectiles and ferocious looking. Here is a 24 lb solid ball and marked so you know who sent it to you. Fired in 1760 at an island fort near Montreal.

I agree with Lee. It's always difficult to be 100% without having it in hand. The blade fullering resembles a British blade but is not. Very nice sword!

The pommel nut could have been added at a much later date due to disassembly for cleaning etc. The pommel, guard and blade appear to be professionally made and in my opinion has good age to them....

I believe Raf is onto something. In the past I've cleaned brass and it resulted in this effect. Using acids can also transfer the colour onto steel components. The sword is far too early to have a...

Old style stamped numbers on the scabbard. I would say the numbers and paint both applied within the swords working life.
