Click on an image to enlarge
This is a neat looking sword that doesn't cost a fortune. This is a nice original infantry sword from the Napoleonic era. The French who are credited with designing the sword referred to them as an "Briquet". They were manufactured from the early 1800s to the later-1800s. It measures 33-1/2 inches in overall size and has a full-length blade that measures 27-3/4th inches in overall size. The blade has the dull gray tone and you can see that it has been cleaned to remove the rust and now has the salt and pepper look to the metal. The original handle is manufactured using a sturdy and dependable cast brass technique. Tee guard must have been loose at one time because they brazed it in place and now it is solid as a rock. When this sword left the Arsenal originally it would've had the scabbard made of leather and brass. As you can imagine they damaged easily and are almost always missing as is the case with this one. A good display sword for your wall and displays much better than the $195 price.
