I think it would be during the early 1800s. Just my opinion from reading about Napoleonic British cavalry swords.

Looks like a cross between a 1796 pattern heavy cavalry sabre and a 1775 infantry officer's sabre.

Depends on the condition, but a few hundred to a few thousand.

Paul- Does having a provenance [history, who owned etc.] effect the value? Or does condition still primarily rule?
