    Hello Fotsirk I'll take a stab at it (pun obviously intended) I do believe it s a Prussian Calvary? sword dated 1914 made by the ALCOSO company. Im not sure what all the markings stand for, but I'm sure at least one or more are imperial proof stamps? Like a government contract number (guessing)? I found another on a French Militaria forum (attached link). My basis for the Calvary connection is the lack of the ears/tabs that overlap the scabbard when sheathed, on horseback and if used another sword/bayonet blade could become entrapped in-between the blade and the tabs, and pull it out the users hand and or him off the horse. But I speculate (seems logical, but I could be wrong). Best regards.
