Default Scratched on the Tsuba

Hi Fellas,
I bought a NCO Shin Gunto type 95 off a fellow forum member a few years back that was in need of restoration to the blade,I managed to do a fairly good job with the tools at my disposal but recently i decided to send it away to get it professionally polished.
The polisher just contacted me to say that the washing process uncovered some writing to the Tsuba it had EAC 4213 by the habaki anbody have any idea what this would stand for?,obviously its not Japanese

Comments appreciated

Bob

Could be soldiers initials & service number. NCO blades are always machine made & really not worth paying for a polish

Maybe an Australian connection, or British serviceman who served with
EAC (Eastern Area Command)? from 1942-45

Just guessing really....

Thanks for the reply's guys
The sword apart from the blade is in excellent condition,plenty of brown/yellow paint to the grip and the scabbard has full paint.
The numbers are matching

The only problem was moisture had go to the blade and caused pits

I will post pics before and after when i get it back for sure


Cheers
Bob
