Default Seeking translation assistance on Indian sword stamp

This sword has a few interesting features. The first is the stamp with Arabic inscription. I make out the numerals 1110 which would translate to roughly around 1688 on the Western calendar which seems a bit early for this blade but maybe not. Perhaps the date is based on a different calendar. Am hoping the inscription provides additional insights. This blade also has the faux European markings but the stamping is about as clear and precise as I have seen. Finally, the hilt motif is very interesting. The fish style motif seems to be a very strong Asian influence.

Looking forward to thoughts and hopefully a translation on the stamp. Thank you.
