The toe/drag difference of the scabbards is significant in differentiating between the Prussian and English sabres. With the painting information confirmed, it would definitely be representative of a Prussian sword.
In photographs, the length of the quilion, bend at the base of the knuckle guard and the ears of the backstrap are also easy points to distiguish between origins of manufacture.
