Once again many thanks for your research efforts re this sword, it certainly makes for very interesting reading.
Thanks, I know you have had numerous swords of this type through your hands and I appreciate your input. I was hoping someone was going to touch upon the possible military field use of these swords and as mine has nicks in the blade somewhat consistent with blade to blade contact there was always that possibility but as I have no proof or provenance it will remain conjecture only.
My Regards to you Both,
P.S. This site is interesting re the military use of these types of swords. www.jaegerkorps.org/blankwaffen.html
Although a re-enactor site these people appear to be very well versed in the history and equipment of the Jaeger Regiments employed by the British in North America.
