Default Help with markings on hussar sabre blade

Does anyone know maker or age of these markings? It is old blade husar, polish? In 19 century otoman mounting, (crossguard) handle is new.
But blade is old and excelent quality, it looks to me 17 century, but any info?

I think the script is "JOHAN OHAN" but unfortunately I cannot see any sense in it.

Hello serdar,

probably Styrian production for East Central Europe from the 17th century. Could have been used in places between Poland to Croatia. Nice blade.
