See, 77th (!) image for an identical example.  30” flattened diamond section blade the ricasso marked Fabrica de Toledo. Silver hilt finely pierced with foliage. The guard with the crowned castle of Spain. The pommel with a demonic face gripping the knuckle bow terminal in its mouth. Fine reeded black goat horn (?) grip.  Spain at the time included 9 Mediterranean islands and two cities on the north coast of Africa, surrounded by Morocco. They were ceded from Portugal by the Treaty of Lisbon, 1668. Most important was the city of Ceuta which was besieged by the Moroccans 1694-1727. In 1859-60, war again broke out with Morocco over Ceuta ending with the Battle of Tetuan. This sword is of the period.
