NCO WW2 swords are machine made lumps of steel, and are the only Japanese swords with a serial number. There are no records anywhere worldwide on who owned or carried them, and just as well, as these are considered weapons in Japan and would be destroyed if ever sent back to Japan. They are not traditionally made, and are only of any value to militaria collectors and not Nihonto collectors.
