Another example of the Germans using captured French material. I think the Prussian Pallasch was essentially a copy of the French one so these were absorbed as is. This one is marked 2 SRR 4 157 (2nd Schwere Reiter Regiment 4th squadron) on the hilt and has the same regiment and squadron on the scabbard (but a different weapon number).
