Default Modified 18th C Hanger ?

Hi,
Found this today at a wee local auction, looked interesting. Blade 26 3/4 inches total of 33 inches. I believe this to be an 18th C hanger not sure if third or fourth quarter. With no maker initials the running fox/dog mark would suggest Harvey although there may be other possibilities of which I am not aware. The mark is on both sides of the blade. The guard has been removed from both sides at some time, the wear at the removal point would appear to suggest that this was done during the working life of the sword. Alterations to guards appear to be less than usual but I know in some instances the standard layout was altered by individuals to suit ease of use etc. the obvious example being the 1796 HC sword. As usual many thanks for all and any replies.
Regards,
Norman.
