This is an original 1st model type 95 variant with the copper hilt. It is very rare to find one of these in such condition with low matching numbers. The scabbard retains much of its original paint and is dent free. The sword is superb with no nicks or rust. Both have the same serial numbers 1879, so this sword was made in the 1st third of production.
