If you are a sergeant, you carry the 1808 Rose. If you are an officer you carry saber with yellow furniture.

Subject: 1812 Yellow Mounted Saber
I am serving with the 1st US Rifle Regiment, and would be interested to find a saber that has a yellow handle.
I have two officers telling me that I should look for a saber over the 1808 Rose Pattern Sword which the infantry Nco carries, and I have one officer and another sgt. stating the Rose Pattern is what I should carry.
Would anyone be able to point me in a direction to find the saber please?
