Cypher / Monogram cursive V under crown

Hello all
This cypher is on what appears to be an early to mid 19 Century British pattern of cavalry sword. It reminds me of the English gunmaker's V under Crown but it isn't. It is really annoying me, as I have seen this cypher before but can not remember where .

Anyone recognize it? It would need to date 1821-1860 or thereabouts.

Thanks
Travlur

Queen Victoria Cypher with a crowned "V", not a crowned "VR"?

Hi, Everyone. I'm trying to verify that Queen Victoria had a cypher of a "V" with a crown above it, not the usual "VR" with a crown.

The images below are from a shotgun made in 1869 by a French royal arms maker. The gun was purchased from a respected American collector whose guns have been displayed at the Metropolitan Museum. Provenance states that this gun was owned by Queen Victoria. I don't know whether Victoria placed the order for this shotgun or it was a gift (possibly from someone who got her cypher wrong!) Any help or advice is greatly appreciated!

*Note that the cyphers on the gun and case use different "V" fonts.
