    Mystery Sword Help??

    One of two very odd swords I just picked up. I posted the other one in the Asian section, but I have no idea on this one. This sword is about 19 1/4 inches long, weighs 1.8 lbs., appears to be solid bronze. There is some type of writing on the blade, but I have no idea what it is? Also symbols on the handle? Looks to be rather old and worn. Any help on origin and age would be helpful. It feels nice in the hand.

    It purports to be Chinese bronze age, but given the number of replicas coming out of China, and Chinese rules about the export of anything over 100 years old..........

    I agree with David and the pommel appears to be recent brass and not aged nearly as much.
