Default 16th Century German Staghorn Powderflasks

Hello all. Here is a new item for my collection. It's complete and in working order. Any opinions to it's origin and data? It's made of staghorn with iron mounts. The metal parts have a thick dark patina. My thinking is early 18th or mid to late 17th Century? Maybe German? The patina is too thick to make out any identifying marks. I'm trying to decide if I should remove the top layer of the patina, leaving the original layer in tact. Should I do this? Thanks for looking. Rick.
