Thank you Gentlemen!  I have learned something new as well.  So, the sword is posted by Ray (Raay) on the Kyu Corner Thread, and appears to have been made for either the Chinese of the 雲南護國軍 YunNan Nation Protection Army or of the later Republic of China (info provided by Jonathan and Trystan), based upon the lion on the backstrap and a crest

Hi Nobody ,   many thanks for the link , a very interesting read about  the Suya Company .

 

Bruce,

 

the info on the other swords with the lions apart from the star shaped Mon , looks nothing like mine, i am still convinced it is in the Japanese  style , but we might never know , 

but thanks to all for there input.

 

as previously said i have seen this sword before on eBay , copied the info , just now need to find it !
