I would ask you to identify this weapon, especially the abbreviation R.G. In the literature the inverse of G.R.Object belongs to my colleague.

Hi Wojtek,
I may have a partial answer to your question using the following East German aka DDR book as a reference; Europäische Hieb- und Stichwaffen: Aus der Sammlung des Museums für Deutsche Geschichte, Aflag 1986 (German Edition) German Edition | by Heinrich Müller Hartmut Koelling

The saber is for an officer serving with a Prussian Fusilier or Jager Regiment M 1826 Ref: Pages 350,351, & 421 Saber #527

Because it is an officer saber, the sword was most likely privately purchased. So the initials. G R, on the langet, are the owners.

The markings on the back of the blade are Imperial markings indicating the Prussian military acceptance or authorized saber. So again, I am taking a Scientific Wild Ass Guess aka SWAG at these markings.

Best regards,
John

The markings on the spine of the blade and the crown proofs on the grip indicate purchase and acceptance by the military. This is not a private purchase weapon, it is government owned and issued. The R G markings may be regimental ownership markings, maybe Reich Gendarmerie?
