Antique Sword, Ivory Carved Handle & Scabbard, Japanese

Japanese Sword and Scabbard - Fabulous Detail!
This sword measures 21" from the tip of the blade to the end of the handle. The handle is missing a piece on the end and the round "cuff" w it meets the blade is not attached to the rest of the handle. This cuff is ivory with wood in the center. The blade is about 3/4" wide and is good condition with only a few spots of rust starting. W the blade goes into the handle it is quite rusty, but still sturdy.
The scabbard is 18 1/2" long. T are two holes in one side (see photo). Also the tip of the scabbard is missing the end piece. I believe this is ivory, but I'm not positive. In any case, since it is an antique, its importation was lawful and it is lawfully being sold. In accordance with eBaypolicy, this item, which is located in the United States may only be shipped to destinations within the United States.
