Quite short. Could be a police or Customs sword. Not one of the later (mid-late 19th century) patterns I usually see, but could be an earlier one (early 19th). I think it's about the right length for that kind of sword.

Being that short I was wondering if it was a naval version 1796 or 1811 Blucher or Robert Mole.

Austrian infantry, mid 19th century model. The blade appears to have been shortened, maybe for the mountain troops. the uber gruppe guys over at
