Just picked this one up tonight and am curious if anyone knows the significance of the tag present on the muzzle ring. The tag appears to be wood or hardened leather and is tied to the muzzle ring with what looks like nylon string. It has two presumably Japanese characters on both sides which I think can be made out in the pics.
Purchased from an estate for $70 which I think was a fair price. How'd I do?
Has some surface rust on the pommel and fasteners/screws but the blade is very nice.
Thanks in advance for any help. I am a novice at bayonet collecting but am learning fast. And this forum has been very helpful thus far.
