That looks like the Peter Munich "moon". That would put it late 17, early 1800s. Very nice piece.

Welcome aboard. Beautiful piece. "Guns And Rifles Of The World", and "Stone" attribute this style butt as being from Coorg (southern India). This makes sense, as that's not too far from Southeast...

Don't do anything to the nakago. That rust, is considered patina on Japanese blades. It tells you the true age of the sword. Yours has some deep pitting. The nakago should be black, not gray. It has...

That is correct. I thought it interesting, that the seller referred to these as "Working Man's Swords". How true. No frills, and just the thing, for a man on a budget.
