Help Id-- Maybe A Kyu Gunto?

Hoping someone can help ID this sword. It appears to be a Kyu Gunto from my research, but I am a novice so I'm unsure. Also not sure about the time period. 

 

I am also curious if anyone is able to translate the writing/markings on the guard pictured in the last photo below. 

 

Appreciate any insight you all may have. 

 

Thanks!

Andrew

looks to also be damaged in the hilt area unfortunately i cannot tell you if its a family blade without seeing the blade further. commonly these were parade swords with a chrome blade but i suspect something else might lay in side. a for the famliy name my book is packed and i cant read it off hand im sure someone here can help with that

Kyu Gunto parade saber, the blade will most likely be machine made with an etched hamon.

 

Thanks for the info! I have attached a few pics of the blade so that you can take a look.
