So I think I did something dumb today. My son was interested in buying military antiques and without doing research (which I almost always do) we bought a Type 95 Japanese non-commissioned sword fro $450 at a reputable antique market. Attached are pictures. After doing research (after the fact) I'm very suspicious that I have a fake but would like confirmation (before I take it back). Some of the markings look "unique", there is no serial on the scabbard, and I'm seeing an interesting marking near the blade proclaiming the emperor in Japanese with a flag symbol (see picture). My wife, who is Japanese, just looked at a Japanese web site that stated that real Type 95 swords never have emperor on them.... What do you think?
