Which model sword is it? And does it have a date or is it an officer's private purchase? FP

Russian Dragoon officer's Model 1881/1909 Shashka dated 1917. St Anne awarded for Bravery with Order of St Anne inlaid in pommel, For Bravery on guard and inscribed to Colonel I. Tsyumanenko, with original St Anne sword knot and original scabbard. Any idea of value ?

Because of the date, I'm going to guess that it's the Model 1909 which has a grip with divided segments at right angles to the length of blade (with the Model 1881 having them at about a 45 degree angle). As for value in today's market - I don't know. Although I would imagine that condition and some of the other factors will also have some bearing on what it's worth. FP
