    Hello Karen,
    This looks to be an original WW II Japanese officer's sword.
    This might help you to get a translation of what is on the tang.

    It does appear to be missing a small part or two though.

    Quite possibly this Morimitsu.

    Interesting to see a 1945 dated blade mounted in the earlier pattern IJA mounts. At this late a date it is doubtful that the owner ever saw any combat.

    The problem here is that it looks to be a marriage of an officers Shin-Gunto with an NCO's scabbard. It will all depend on the condition of the blade, which can only be judged in the hand.
