Odd model that is not of brass fittings as per regulations but instead is iron/nickel hilted version which is mounted with a blade stamped with the AP , fasces and CM markings and these were from the Arsenal of Paris that inspected foreign made blade so big possibility this sword was for Allied heavy cavalry (Wurttemberg, Bavaria, Holland, Bade etc). Another possibility is that it was made during the end of the Empire with an iron hilt due to shortage of brass and given an old recycled blade. Whatever the reason, it has history and is super attractive! Good condition: the whole sword is in very shiny state with some spots here and there but overall very well preserved, but the handguard has some light movement. The knuckle bow is stamped with faint barred numbers and inspection marks. The scabbard also has a barred service number and a stamp at the drag; it also has that unknown rope holding the 2 rings, something which is very often encountered on period swords. Sword length: 43 / 110cm. Blade length: 37 / 95cm. Total length: 45 / 115cm. Low reserve price for such a sought after model!

Here is a summary from his Wikipedia page. Thomas Eugene Bourke (May 5, 1896 January 9, 1978) was a United States Marine Corps general who, during World War II, commanded Marine artillery units at the Battle of Guadalcanal, Tarawa and Leyte. At the end of World War II, he commanded the 5th Marine Division in the occupation of Japan, and the Fleet Marine Force, Pacific BiographyEdit Bourke was a native of Robinson, Maryland, and a graduate of St. Johns College, Annapolis, Maryland.

Post-World War I tours included service at Quantico, Parris Island, San Diego, and Headquarters Marine Corps. He also served at Pearl Harbor; was commanding officer of the Legation Guard in Managua, Nicaragua; saw sea duty on board the battleshipUSS West Virginia (BB-48); and commanded the 10th Marine Regiment. Following the Guadalcanal and Tarawa campaigns, General Bourke was assigned as the V Amphibious Corps artillery officer for the invasion of Saipan.
