A very rare Napoleonic period French sword circa 1800. A fabulous rare sword of the Napoleonic period, this pattern sword we now know is called a
"Sabre de Gendarmerie d'Armee sabre modele de l'AN IX." (Thanks to Mr Ian Knight for that valuable information). This 
model sword was carried before and during the battle of Waterloo in June 1815. This particular example has the early iron hilt. Complete in its original steel scabbard with two hanging rings. No visible markings. The 38 inch blade with the early hatchet point. There are no date markings to the back edge as this blade pre-dates when the date marks first started to appear. A highly desirable and rare sword. The grip wire and leather are replaced, some pitting to the scabbard, otherwise in very reasonable condition. Overall length in scabbard is 46 inches. Ref 8638.

 Napoleonic weapons are very popular with collectors and are highly likely to increase in value as they get much harder to find keeping in mind the interest aroused by the bi-centenary of the Battle of Waterloo which was in June of 2015.
