Default American Horsemans or British Dragoon sword?

I have been thinking this sword American revolution which it is for time period.
Neumanns book illustrates this sword hilt 1768-80.
Is it American or British as it dates before Britain standardized sword patterns.
The sword is well made, a 35 3/4" curved blade with clipped point. Has a good even taper and the width narrows from ricasso and swells to point.
WYATT is stamped on the blade ricasso and the mark A/57 is stamped on the guard and scabbard mouth. The mouth has a white buff leather strap.
Not an inexpensive sword for a trooper. Balance is good for a cutting sword at 5 3/4" from hilt.
