1 super rare scabbard for a World War II Japanese copper handle NCO sword available. This rare scabbard would make an important addition to any collection, and would complete a copper handle NCO sword that is missing its scabbard.
The scabbard for the early copper handle NCO sword had a brass plug instead of a drag fitting. See the reference photos 5 & 6 above from Jim Dawson's excellent reference book, Swords of Imperial Japan 1868-1945 Cyclopedia Edition.
The throat fitting is missing from this scabbard, but is the same throat fitting as the later NCO sword scabbards--which are way more commonplace. So a throat fitting can be pulled from an old or rough condition later NCO sword scabbard and put on this early scabbard. There is some expected corrosion on the scabbard--a little more towards the brass plug end. The scabbard was perhaps stored leaning up against a wall in a more damp area like a basement. This scabbard is so very hard to find.
This scabbard represents a rare opportunity to complete a copper handle NCO sword that came back from the War with no scabbard.
