An amazing thread !! More !!
I know less than nothing about these European weapons ... however, I did find this at http://www.cullodenantiques.com/pag...ed-weapons.html
to whit there appears an equal Fleur de Lys below from that weapon not an English Dragoons Basket Hilted Backsword
but a Scottish Troop Horse Grenadiers Sword
Sorry Norman !!
OOPS...!! This I note has already generally been pointed to earlier at #6.. but I make the correction.
I note also at #9 some arabic to the blade which is a variation on the "God is Great" theme but stacked half sideways...
