1881.

Supplied to officers with rank of General.

History notes:
The Austrian artillery was absolutely in the forefront in the period after the Seven Years’ War.

In fact, it was only in 1809 that the artillery was reorganised and
started to be grouped into large formations as
an Army Corps; in addition, according to the calibres, it was divided into
position batteries, composed of heavy pieces of 12 pounds.
In fact, the sword refers to calibre 12.
Calibre supplied to the foot artillery, with fixed positions, in fact it was called “heavy”.


This sabre is very rare with precise references engraved on the blade. In addition, its neck mentions a name, probably that of general “August Krauss Landau”.
