Default Original WWII Japanese NCO Sword

Hi fellow collectors,
I would apreciate your oppinion about this Japanese Sword.
Is this a original WWII Japanese NCO Sword, or what?
The Numbers on the blade and the saya/ scabbard do not match.
Anu Red flag, please, let me know.
Regards,

Fábio.

Default original Japaneses nco sword

it looks original, it is a later type with iron Fuchi and Tsuba, it is not uncommon to have mismatched blade and scabbard.

Agree. I have a mismatched one myself. Seems legit.

Looks like an authentic Type 95 Army NCO sword. Those Tokyo Arsenal top latch, iron tsuba versions were in production as early as 1941 I believe.

Regards,
Stu

I'm not certain .... but it sort of looks like:

sha
company/association/company/society


Examples:

会社 Kaisha [company]
社会 Shakai [society]
神社 Jinja [Shinto shrine]
