Hello Ken,

I'm relatively sure, that this is a so called "Jagdplaute", a German slightly curved hunting sword.

Please try this search and you will find more of them:

or this link (only in German): http://www.zietenhusar.wg.am/jagdplaute/

But there is another possibility, it could be an American revolutionary war naval officer's sword. https://www.google.de/search?q=amer...f=1521459846789

In my opinion it is quite unusual for a military sword.
