    M1811 German/Prussian Light Cavalry Saber. Patterned directly after the M1796 British saber and oft referred to as the "Blucher sword" for its use at Waterloo. The 1796/1811 is viewed by many historians as the most effective military slashing saber ever devised, and was continually used by German cavalry units through the end of the 19th century. Sword overall with nice patina, in near perfect untouched condition. Blade retains most of the luster. Leather wrapped grip and scabbard also perfect. Blade, hilt and scabbard all bear the number 246H1. Back of the blade also with manufacture date (18)82. Scabbard and reverse langet exhibit the mark R.I.M.23.32. Very fine example and especially desirable with these matching numbers/unit marks.
