      Third one is good

      Last one looks like the M1840 NCO sword. Check for markings on the blade near the hilt.

      I agree with Flash & Scott on the 3rd one. Not being any standard military or other known pattern, the other 2 present a problem. Need more expertise than mine there. The 3rd one could be a musician's sword. They are virtually identical to the NCO sword.

      1 and 2 look like display/souvenir pieces. Have that middle east look.

      Not a musicians sword-- the cross guard is flat on a musicians sword. This example has the oval section on the guard.

      All very interesting. I thank you. Does M1840 mean it might have been made in 1840? I see no markings near the hilt, just the number 84 stamped very small in three places on the presumably brass handle. Would this connect with the 84 in M1840?

      A friend of mine who is into knives just looked at it and told me it never had a blade put on it because it has no sharp edge. Don't know what to make of that.

      "Model" 1840-- made up until the end of the 19th century and reproductions made today.

      It wouldn't have an edge-- this is not a killing weapon, it is for directing troops/ worn to show status and rank.
