    Looks like a legitimate 3rd model that was marked for export to the U.S. shortly after the war. The "1" is a mold number and not a model number as per sellers description. IMO- It is priced very high, especially considering the condition of the scabbard and overall wear.

    MAybe 150-200 US Dollars not much more than that due to the condition of the scabbard
