    Timo, I don't understand why you insist on 刀剑鉴定 (DĀOJIĂN JINDNG) being the same book; it's written by the same author, who uses some of the photos of his "Iron and Steel Swords" in the section...

    The name erased in the scan is that of the person who applied for and received the papers; subsequent owners write their name in the columns left to it (and below that the date). It's common on all...
