Austrian Marine Naval Cutlass Sword Model 1858 by FS Jung

The sword has a thick and forward heavy pipeback blade, a basket guard as for this kind of weapon. Produced by FS Jung with a mark of a cross surrounded by four smaller crosses.  Dated 1858. No scabbard. Grips have damage but blade and the rest of the sword are in very good condition. Measurements 76 cm / 30 inches
