Default Tajong or Coteng?

Typically I would look at the hilt profile here as a keris coteng. The hilt is paired with selut of horn. The blade profile and the scabbard type are typically for a keris tajong I believe. You can make out a pale line the blade's forging. There is a nice patina to both the wooden hilt and scabbard. If this is a proper keris tajong it is the smallest I have handled. I am more inclined to think it is a keris coteng.

Thanks for any insights.
