Default 19th Century Spanish Colonial Sword

My latest find is this 19th century sword reflecting strong Moro influence. The Spanish styled hilt is iron-mounted with horn grip and evidence of original wire wrap. Blade having several small edge nicks and a single slanting hash mark at the ricasso. 27 3/16" overall, 21 1/2" blade. Any information that anyone can offer on this item will be greatly appreciated.

VVV and Manicdj,
I thank you for your input as to where this sword was made. Would either one of you care to share your opinions on the possible date of when this was made or on any other aspects of this sword?

Robert,

I don't collect Luzon swords, or practise their martial arts, so I don't know much about it.
Unfortunately I have to limit what to collect out of lack of space.
But I am surprised that none of the Luzon collectors have something to add considering
that it looks like a very interesting sword?

Michael,
Again I thank you for your reply. I guess that I will just wait and see if anyone else has anything else to add to this discussion. I think most people are more interested in the more pure or traditional style weapons and not in this type of hybrid weaponry. I myself find these cross cultural weapons quite interesting.
