It looks to me that it has a sun-ray tsuba.  The two pictures of the nakago only show the habaki side seppa, which appears to be backwards.  'Course I'm old and half blind, so could be completely out to lunch.

Is it just my eyes or is this sword missing the Tsuba that goes between the two sun rayed seppas?

 

You are correct, the center plain iron tsuba is missing. Although the pic I posted has the square hole for the lock, and the item above does not have a lock, they still both use the same design, and number of pieces. These are all easily found on eBay.

 

Good luck with sale. I would recommend more pics of the blade, to help you with the sale.

Matt only a view from a loving collector of these swords.

Please do not lay your sword on the ground. You will frighten any potential buyers. 

 

This is the only way to do it right.

Btw your sword is nice from a highly reputated smith. I hope it gets a new home.

 

Mods: You can remove this post, no problem. But i must wrote this advice.

 

I have a nice munemitsu in collection and love it.
