Model 1831 French with an unusual possibly Confederate Star Stamp. The brass guard is tight. Has a Star stamped into the underside of the crossguard and a "1127"? Across the front of the crossguard. The blade is straight and complete but rusted over, still in solid shape, not flaking or sharp, tip is blunted.
The pommel cap has been cut down. Length of the blade measures 18 11/16" and overall length of the sword is 24 3/8". An interesting piece that you could do more research on. Several of these swords were imported before and during the Civil War and saw service on both sides of the battle.
