Sword artilleria fabrica de toledo 1895

Spanish Cavalryman with M1895.png

G'day,

Finally got around to reading all the different sites.  The guard looks like an 1880 Spanish Cavalry Sword and government issue by the maker's mark. 1895 indicates a very late production or a preference over the newer 1895 Spanish Cavalry Sword that had a very innovative hand-grip that was much more hand form-fitting.  The guard, however, looks far more like a guard from an 1895! Officer with 1895 pictured above.

I posted on my private purchase 1895 Cavalry Sword previously.

 

Hope this helps.

Second sentence should read "The SWORD looks like . . ." To counter this, the blade looks flat and that is much more typical of the 1895 issue cavalry sword. Maybe the owner didn't like the new hand grip? 

See attachment.
