I found this sword in our family farm house, that no one has lived in since my Grandfather was alive which was over 25 years ago. I've tried to find the writing on the tang on the web, but there is alot of different variations out there and not sure how to ID it or if what I was finding was even close to being correct. There is no handle, there is writing on the tang, wooden and leather(?) scabbard sheath. Any help would be very much appreciated.
Can you take some more photos of the text with different angles of lighting. This may assist legibility by highlighting the engraved marks better. It doesn't matter if none of the photos show the complete text, so long as there is a photo showing each part of the text in its best light we may have a better chance of reading it out then.
Also, can we see the other side of the leather sheath, if looks similar to a sword I've seen before, doe it have a criss-crossing large diamond pattern stitching along the length?
How sure are you the sheath end has been put back together in the correct alignment?
Here is a world war II officer’s leather scabbard which looks very similar.
Here is some better ( I hope) photos of the writting.
Here are 2 pics of the stitching.
What site did you find this one at? It looks almost exactly like the one I have.
I am so sorry...I copied the picture and went back to retrieve the website and it was for a FRAME SHOP!? I knew it was a ringer...I just couldn't figure out how to get back there and try to inquire, after the fact.
That's ok thank you, I will keep trying to find out more about it and again thank you.
I think I found the actual sword this time!
Thank you this is a big help!!!
