I take this as a typical Swiss sword. The lions- or dogs head is absolutely typical for Swiss arms at that time and one can find them in many auction catalogues or Swiss collections today. The script on one side of the blade reads "CUM CORE AUT MORI" and should be in English "with the core or die". The script on the other side I cannot read, sorry!Of course it it also possible that this sword has been made in southern Germany or Austria, the frontiers are fluent, but its type is iMO absolutely Swiss.
