Default Barung with chopmark/stamp

I recently acquired this barung which has a chopmark/stamp. The hilt is modern.

I am not sure if the mark on this blade is authentic. I have read ,and was told also, that there are some instances wherein chopmarks are made on the barung in order for the steel to look like from China thus increasing the value in the old times.
