Arrow Need help with identifying Moroccan Koummya

Hello,

I'm new to this forum and this is my first koummya.
The seller told me he bought it on a auction and that the koummya dates from 1870 - 1910. I highly doubt that because of the 5 ram's head silver Dahir stamps which Morocco started with since 1925 i understand.

I've done my research in this forum on koummya's and also online on YouTube. So far i have discovered what the stamp means (800 silver, with the M of Marrakech). Now, there is i think writings in red on the bottom curve and i dont know if it's spanish, french or maybe even hebrew. The lemmet has no stamps or markings. Also, do you advise me to clean the wood?
