1747M Prussian / Danish M1813 Heavy Cavalry
A 1747 model Prussian / Germanic / Napoleonic Wars Danish "Rytterpallask
M1813" backsword for a heavy / dragoon cavalry trooper with
regimental markings to the hilt, in good condition.
The hilt is Prussian 1747 model, but the sword could have been
made for / used in Denmark during the Napoleonic Wars as a Danish
Rytterpallask M1813. The poinçons on the blade looks most
like part of a Potsdam inspector's acceptance mark, but we have
been unable to positively identify it in any of our reference books.
The impressive 35 1/2 inch straight blade is in good condition,
though aged and with some light pitting. Blade firm in hilt. The
brass hilt overall very good considering (some repairs). The grip
looks original and is in pretty good though worn shape.
A very rare sword, possibly from the Allied occupation of France
after Waterloo / the 100 Days War, and available for only £?
(too late, now sold). Please quote item reference K76 (1171). Further
/ full sized pictures available upon request.
