This is a Classic Short Sword, 25" total, blade is 19 1/2" Brass handle. It was found in SC back in the 60's and has been in my collection for 50 years. I don't know much about it, it is not like any other I have ever seen. It was black smith made way back there. Very strong blade.

This info came from a person in the know.These French M-1832's were run through the Federal Naval blockade into the south and... obviously, to be used by the south. U.S. imports are marked by the country of manufacture. French and English war material destined for the U.S. market were marked and shipped direct. Pieces destined for the Confederate market were unmarked and shipped to C.S. warehouses in Bermuda and orders were then loaded onto Confederate privateer blockade runners and run into the ports of Savannah, Charlestown, Wilmington.. etc. Much of the Confederate war material was of foreign manufacture.
