I think the papered tsuba is the one that is on the koshirae and the one in picture with the papers is just an addon.

 

I understand how community often sees the old papers as worthless, however I am giving them some credit. Regardless, when you have something like mumei attribution to Mizuta it is not a very high praise in my eyes.

You are right Jussi….my old eyes!

I cannot  see it selling at that money. Maybe it’s just the images but it looks very ordinary. Does that fuchi look repro to anyone?

Dear All.

 

The clue about the tsuba, in auctioneer speak, is the phrase, 'together with', which always implies something additional.  Even at the starting bid the total inclusive of fees would be £3600, perhaps they are getting carried away by the presence of papers?

 

All the best.
