Hi again!

I’ve taken a picture of the blades spine. At least I couldn’t see any markings.

The blade length is 78 cm.

Being a German blade unlikely to have a makers name, later period Runkel did mark his blades. British blades of this period usually are maker marked such as Wooley.

Thanks Daniel,
I was hoping to see the remains of the Solingen "swirl" on the blade spine, but as you say there isn't anything obvious there. Looking at those stamps on the guard again, one of them almost looks Cyrillic. Perhaps it is Russian?
Cheers,
Bryce

Well apologies to contradict, but the sword you have just posted is an unmistakeable standard pattern British 1788 light cavalry sword. For me, yours is totally different.

Could this sabre be Prussian, German, Austrian or Russian? I think I can make out a double-headed eagle (slightly obliterated) stamped on the quillon terminal. Just a thought.

It´s possible its Prussian, German, Austrian or Russian. I´ve googled a couple of hours looking into those search criterias, but all I can find are similiar ones. I´ve also checked Scandinavia which it is not, and definetely not Swedish since I collect swedish swords. Perhaps anyone knows of another forum with a more central/eastern european sword forum?

I´ve been searching Internet for some answers to my husarsabre. And today I stumbled across this one.
AM.056582.jpg
I found it on the Swedish armymuseum digital museum and is labeled as Russian husar sabre 1762-69 with Katarina II:s cypher. If I compare the circular cypher (see earlier attached photo) I think I can see the remenants of that cypher. Or what do you think?
