Hello Chris,
Yes, I think you are correct. The sword in the attachment above is a " better quality " example. All the numbers on the fittings including one on the nakago are matching.The silk Ito is covering a quality large nodule samegawa....The nicely forged blade fits perfectly in the lightweight saya...Looks like some officer commissioned the sword to be assembled with nice than average parts.
Regards,
Paul.
