Hi My Name is Charles from Long Island, NY, USA. I have owned a couple of nice swords for several years now, but like most people need money more than an edged weapon. I would love to sell but more than that I would love to find out who was the original owner. It was first asked of me by a buyer (that deal never happened) now I am a little obsessed with finding out. I don't even think I want to get rid of the sword if I find out something unique, my kids will need at least one thing to fight over when i die. Glad I found this forum. People on here seem really bright. I hope they can help. Thanks in advance.
