Can anyone identify this old sword?

    Hey guys, pretty new to the forum so if I've posted this in the wrong spot, let me know.

    My grandfather, RIP, gave this sword to me when I was a kid. I don't think he used it in any war, he was probably just a collector like ourselves. My mom used to always warn me that there was dried poison on the tip.

    Any ideas on the history behind this sword? I don't know where to even start.

    Looks Prussian/German and of white brass (nickle silver). It is too bad I can't see much of the etching. Any letters or numbers on the base of the blade or spine might be helpful.

    A 19th Century Prussian "Blucher" sabre missing it's guard, but the blade is too straight???
