Dear NMB members:
It's raining parade swords in my town. I just picked up three this last week. One is smaller, has a more elaborate back strap and the fuller stops about 8-10 inches from the point, I have attached a few pictures. Can anyone identify the one with the more elaborate back strap? Thanks for any information, I suspect the top two are type 19s. Not sure of the smaller one.
