french naval cutlass m1833 dated 1842 #10 and 1841 #11 with scabbard

Above French Naval Cutlass #10 dated 1842 and #11 is dated 1841 and both have the necessary French arsenal poincons and anchors clearly visible on the hilts, blades, and ricasso. Cutlass #10 is in better condition with a clean polished blade indicating that it was safely kept in a scabbard for 170 years. Cutlass #11 is in good condition with a darker patina indicating that it was stored outside of a scabbard, the poincons on the ricasso and hilt can be seen but are somewhat obsured by the leather lozenge and black japanning, it also has some very minor battle marks/nicks on the blade. The original M1833 scabbard came with cutlass #10 and is in good condition with some flaking of the leather as could be expected, it also has an anchor arsenal stamp on the throat.

HISTORY: The French Naval Cutlass M1833 was the premier naval cutlass for most of the European navies throughout the 19th century and was a prized weapon by the enlisted sailor. This was such a sought after weapon that most navies patterned their cutlasses after this French model. As previously discussed this includes the US Navy which patterned it's Civil War Naval Cutlass the M1860 after this French Naval Cutlass.

This particular naval cutlass being offered for sale has the following attributes: Cutlass #10 is dated 1842 which is pre-French Revolution and the provenance in written script found on the spine of the blade attests to this, "MANUFre Rle de CHATELLERAULT Juine 1842". Cutlass #11 dated 1841 has on it spine "MANUFre Rle de CHATELLERAULT Aout 1841". In addition, on the blade of both cutlasses there are the two standard large anchors lightly stamped on both sides of the blade about 3" down from the ricasso.

There is plenty of japanning left on the inside steel guard and grip on both cutlasses. On the hilt's inside quillon are the two inspector's cartouche as would be expected. Cutlass #10 also has a small anchor inspection stamp clearly visible on the inside hilt and what appears to be an "X" or a "K" on the outside quillon, with inspector's cartouche clearly visible on the ricasso of the blade.

The scabbard is in good condition given the age, still very usable without any damage, some flaking of the outside leather. Both the brass tip and throat are held firm and the brass throat has a small anchor arsenal inspection stamp.
