Default 17thC Sword, maybe?

Hi,
A possible 17thC sword for your opinions. O.A. 37 1/2 inches, blade 31 1/2 inches, lenticular cross-section blade, weight 1 lb 15 3/4 oz.

Some things seem o.k. to me. Patina, no modern welding, chisel engraved decoration, running wolf suits time period, numeral font, springy blade, handles like a sword intended for use, blade still quite sharp with nicks where one would expect, tang peen and general feel. Cons, the date, although I have seen this on genuine pieces, the crisp engraving although again I have seen this on genuine pieces. Looking forward to your ideas.
Regards,
Norman.
