Katana military mounts (fss-910)

This is a katana that dates back to the 1600s or 1700s. It is mounted in military WWII fittings.  The sword over all is in good condition but could use restoration.  It is also signed but we feel that the signature is not correct for the workmanship on the sword.  The process in restoration of these types is that the first step is to remove the signature and make the sword unsigned. It can then be appraised properly and issued papers respectively in the future, or it can be appreciated as it is now with its history.  Here we find an antique Japanese sword that was mounted for the war effort.  It was customary for family Swords to be taken to the Arsenal and mounted during this time period for WWII.
