I think this is a 12 pounder Cohoern mortar made at Liège in 1848. It is not German but Belgium!

French sword(?)

I got this sword this morning. Its total length is 915 mm, the blade has 750 mm and the weight is 401 g. Is it really a French item? Remarks/opinions are invited.

I cannot believe this. Look at the fotos of some German spontoons, all with langets and they have been primarily a rank sign of seargents and secondly made for battle - at least in Germany.

I think after the shot you have to turn back (c) by hand until (d) will engage again, that's all. Then you can stretch the string again

Après le "Qui est Qui de l'Arme en France" I think, the gunmaker was Jean Baptiste MAZELIER 1726-1760. It was Perre Lepage who was apprentice at him between 1726 and 1730.

A foto of the gunmaker's signature would help a lot, because there is no "MARDIER" in France, but lots of "MERCIER"s and other names that could be possible.
