Hi,
i recently bought a small collection of sabres, most Dutch. With it came this giberne. Have no idea because the coat of arms is unknown to me. Does someone have an idea? Thanks!

I think you will find it is Saxon; see their infantry flags which have this design in the middle on one side.

Sorry if I was not clear; I mean Saxon as in the state of Saxony; therefore not a British crown.
