What does this mean?

Dear Jacob,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be a sword made out of steel or iron with the measurements of 50 inches length. This sword was made in the style of the 15th century in the second half of the 20th century as a replica. The stamp Made in Spain locates this piece. Especially the area around Toledo was famous for his weaponsmiths and nowadays many copies like this sword are there still produced.
This piece is in bad condition and there are damages visible.
An estimation would be between 20 to 30 USD.
This estimation is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

With kind regards,
Georg
