IMO I'm not sure if the scabbard is from the 19th century, and the "thin versus thick rattan" has nothing to do with the age of the scabbard. :-)

Even in museum collections they...

That is why I...

Erik, you mention the Lopah Petawaran in your article, that it was in use in Aceh and in the Batak lands.
Do you know of an example which shows more Aceh features as Batak?
