thank you for your comment, very interesting to hear, that this was your sword some years ago.
One side of the loose hand guard is in good condition, the other side is badly rusted and has a hole. Maybe this helps.
I also think, that some of the finer grip wires got lost.
But still a perfect duel sword.
