What does this mean?

Dear Daniel,

Thank you for the additional images.

The presented object appears to be a Saudi-Arabian scimitar sword with a steel blade, brass handle, and probably plastic grip. This sword shows the emblem of Saudi-Arabia on the handguard (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emblem_of_Saudi_Arabia) and was probably made in the 20th century for decorative or representative purposes.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 50 to 100 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
Georg
