Nice polish, great looking koshiare, but what is going on with that "Mei"? Looks to me like the nakago is shin-shinto era, so was the "Mei" chisseled in later by as it got put into a type 98 mount?

Can't make much out about the blade from the photos. Kind of looks like someone tapped out the original mei, and added a gimei? Possibly removing a Showa-era smith's signature and replacing it with something to make it seem older?
