Yes, that's it. Just looking for some comparison betweeen the two. So any addition pictures would be great.

I don't understand what you mean by the term "general mounts."? The 2 belt hanger ashi make this a Type 94. 94's had a removable ashi and a permanent one. All the other fittings are standard shingunto. Is that what you mean, or is it simply the general officer's tassel that is generating the term?

I suppose Generals would have high quality custom army pattern mounts, perhaps that is what he is looking for?

Sorry for the delay. Page 158-159 of the Dawson book. Type 94 with general grade tassel and lower removable ashi. The one I was studying has early type smooth paint. The one pictured in the Dawson book is the later paint type. Not too many examples with these type of quality fittings. Just asking if someone is kind enough to share pictures of a example.

Hi Charlie , I don't think that there is a difference between paints with one being early and another being late . I am sure it just depends on which sword shop you went to and how much you wanted to spend . Ian Brooks

The koshirae doesn't denote the rank. The Tassel denotes the rank. If it is a fairdinkum generals koshirae, there should be some sort of provenance.
