Hello David,

I think that there is a lower part missing at Green's example, the small ring part under the cup looks very original to my eyes.

BTW, great google work with the Jalan H. M Dg. Patompo!...

Hi Ian,
not really, the scabbard mouth is missing as well the attachment for the belt loop.




I think it's a little bit older, late 19th century until very early 20th century would be my guess, see...

It was once a worthy wrongko, iras carved, sadly it's broken but hidden from the pendhok. I think that the North coast could be the origin as well.
