My son recently inherited a Katana sword from his Great Uncle who served in the US Navy in WW2.  It came to us with a very old leather/suede handle cover with a stamped marking on the inside. I have never seen anything like this.  Is anyone able translate and shed some light on this item for us??  Thank you!

That appears to be a stamp authenticating it as top quality leather.
