Japanese police saber

Textbook perfect example of a Japanese Mounted Police Hanger Type 2, as delineated in Fuller and Gregory's seminal work, 'Japanese Military and Civil Swords and Dirks' (Charlottesville, Howell Press, 1997; p.190). This style of hanger is quite scarce. Most likely from the late 1800's/early 1900's, although F&G say that the dating of these weapons is uncertain.
