    a look at the blade engraving would be nice.

    No real idea mate, it looks nice. the helmet on the pommel looks a bit like a firemans helmet, so perhaps for a cities fire department for parades. Only a rambling guess really.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Could there be a Danish connection ?

    Order of the Elephant - the badge on the guard looks very similar
