    Description

    Vintage Japanese Sword In WWII Officer's Mounts 37 1/2" overall with a 21 1/2" unsigned bright polished blade with straight temper line and slight wood grain finish. Blade edge shows a few very small nicks. Standard WWII officer's handle mounts in excellent condition. Wood leather covered scabbard shows average service wear. An attached paper tag states that the sword was captured from a General Okawa on May 7, 1944 in the Philippine Islands by a Lieutenant Phillip Mayer, U.S.M.C. and was displayed at the Pacific War Museum in Portland, Oregon from 1857 to 1968, when it was returned to the donor. This information has not been confirmed.
