Chilean dress sword
The hilt has a gilt, solid half basket guard with raised bars. The oval-shape, which on a British sword would contain a crown and anchor badge, contains an anchor surmounted by a five-pointed star (or mullet); the folding flap on the reverse has a hole to engage stud on top locket of scabbard and there is a small up-turned quillion with disc terminal. The guard is pierced only at the bottom, near the pommel for a sword knot.
