I can only compare your sword to a hanger I have that is British circ 1790
The pommel has that extended tip or point facing downwards which is not typical of other swords.
I would say it's British and from the same 1790's period.
It also has a somewhat French appearance, some would say "Continental" type.
The grip has been replaced so we can't use that to identify.

The downward facing langets are typical for French swords circa 1800. The knucklebow on yours is similar to Will's but it is closer to the so-called reverse P style that came out in 1798. My guess is French, circa 1790-1800 Pre-Napoleonic. Of course, I think I've seen Russian and Austrian swords with those same lozenge-shaped langets... :shrug:

This is probably a French light cavalry officers sabre of the Consulat or First Empire.
