I would like to offer these images of the same type of sabre.
Where once these swords were very rarely seen, the last 12 months alone has seen 4 that I know of on the market.
The suspension fitting on this example is similar to another seen and may also offer some insight to the origins.
All 4 examples I viewed had the single upper suspension mount only, 2 like this, 2 like Kurts.
I feel they could be from the Oman Persian Gulf regions.
