An interesting example of a WWII period Japanese police lieutenants officers dress saber. Excellent condition through with the Imperial symbol on the backstrap, which is more heavily engraved than normal. The grip also is covered in grey rayskin, an uncommon feature, the signficant of which we have yet to decipher.
The blade is clean with no damage. Sword is tight overall.
Overall length is 35, blade is 26.
