the royal french infantry/dragoon hangers were imported into the USA as aid for the continentals during the revolution, and modified by removing the outer part of the guard where your fleur is, like mine below. they also came without the fleur (napoleonic imperial period?), example from google also below. british dragoon swords of the period had round grips with an urn-like pommel, like the pooley swords made for the loyalists & crown forces in NY. the brits later used a hilt style more like these.
