    Swords are certainly not my specialty but based on your description I would pass.

    TC as much as I or others want you to jump on it...Pics are still essential. 200 to 300 is still money and not worth losing on a blind gamble.

    I agree. These swords are not rare and you describe a rough condition one. Even without seeing the photos I would pass on it and put the money towards a better quality example. A bad condition sword will always be a bad condition sword and lowly valued.

    The above well stated, without seeing the sword - instead of a bargain you could just be losing money. Best Regards, Fred
