    October 1941

    I'm guessing at the 十六 (16) -- I thought the was because of the upturned leg; but that explanation doesn't fit. 99% certain it is 16.

    It looks more like "九"instead of "六"。This is type 44 NLF GUNTO,1944(昭和十九年)seem to fit the bill。

    Cheers

    I'm thinking this sword variation is what Nick Komiya referred to in his article as Army. Yes?

    Gee, Bangbangsen ... as I look at it again I think you're right. I guess I really had my mind set on 六 and never had room to think of 九. But you're right.

    Don't feel bad,It dose look like "元"or "光"since part of it covered by that"一00".
