From an old collection this solid brass handled French Infantryman's briquet AN XI was produced at the Imperial Armory of Klingenthal in June 1815; this was during the "100 Days". What makes it very desirable is that it is in a rare Imperial Guard scabbard that but for some normal age shrinking matches and fits this sword perfectly. The explanation has to be that during the emergency and great shortages prior to Waterloo regulation infantry hangers were utilized by the Imperial Guard. It is doubtful that the regulation Imperial Guard hanger of superior quality and Versailles manufacture were produced at all during this short 3-month period.  Blade measures 24 inches while the overall length is 30 inches.  Inspected by Krantz and Bick.  [pe] [ph:L]
