Smile My dad's old klewang

My dad is old and sick so I am trying to figure out what the stuff he collected during his younger years really are. Today I learned that an old Turkish sword that has been hanging above my dad's bed for as long as I can remember is actually an Indonesian klewang. He bought it in Holland around 1958. It says TJIKEROEH 1899 on the blade. It is not in perfect condition but I guess it still looks quite okay. I will try to upload a few images that I took today with a camera that I don't like. If anyone would like/need to see some more pictures of the klewang - just let me know and I will use my other camera. My intention is to sell this klewang so I would like to know what it might be worth and as much as possible about its history. Thanks in advance!
