What a nice surprise! As I'm sure you know already, gold ornamentation on Moro swords was reserved for royalty or persons of very high ranking (such as panglima or powerful datu). It is very uncommon to find gold on a plain battle kris such as this one. The blade deserves a careful polish and etch because it is likely of high quality also.
