Re: Please decode this inscription.

I believe that weapon numbers for lances or sabers would be stamped directly on the weapon, not on a separate tag. Just my opinion.

Re: Early Hannoverian Uhlan document (1827)

Thank you Bob. I have pretty much hibernated through the holidays. So, not much going on, but I am blessed--no complaints. Look, I have researched all of the Imperial cavalry units and written up a brief history on each, at least as much history as I could find. I would like to send the 13U write-up...

What makes a Kammerstuck saber different from other sabers--The stamped unit mark? I have a combat saber that is marked to the 1.R.J.P.2.86. It has a struck out mark 14.U.61.

The straight saber appears to be a cavalry quill-back combat weapon (that is if that is a rivet through the handle--there should be two). If it is, there might be a unit mark on the basket hilt. More photos please.
