thanks for your reply. I also think I will clean it. Will post pictures of the outcome.

one general question on those Walloon swords:
some descriptions say it is the French model 1678/79, some say they are Dutch and around 1650, some has a xxx-mark on the ricasso, which some people interpret as an arsenal stamp for the Amsterdam town guard but I also read that those stamps are just trader stamps.
Can someone bring light into the darkness and explain where those swords can be located and how they can be dated?

Kind regards
