Here we have the iconic rapier for Swedish infantry officer that where in use from late 17th century and through the whole war.
This is the same type of rapier that king Charles XII, Karl XII, Carl XII had in Fredrikshald, Norway in 1718 when he get shot.
This type of rapier was used from second lieutenant and upwards to the king.
