Default small/court sword for comment and restoration tips

Hello forumites!

I am asking for your opinions on how best to address the fragile condition of the tip of this newly acquired smallsword/court sword. The pictures show the corrosion near the tip, and the oxidation along the entire blade. There is scrollwork along the first third, but it is hard to see, and harder to photograph.

Also, I would love to learn how to determine the country of origin for such a piece. I think it is consistent with late 1700s examples. Of course, I always have anxiety something is a reproduction, so feel free to tell me the truth if you question authenticity. As I said in a previous thread, if I got ripped off, it is merely tuition for my education.

Total length is just shy of 36 inches.

Thank you for sharing some measure of your hard earned knowledge.
