    Default Russo-Japanese era sword?

    A friend has a Russo-Japanese era sword I think, sorry for the poor quality pictures, but can anyone tell me more about the blade etc, this is not an area where I am familiar in.
    I think the blade may be closer to the era since it does not look a handmade blade?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    This appears to be a Japanese Police Sword...another popular GI bringback.

    As to value, it's difficult to say without seeing good photos of the piece, particularly the blade. Based just on what I see so far I'd limit my offer to 150 USD. Others with an interest in that particular area may value it differently.

    Looks more like the army parade dress saber.
