This daab is unequivocally northern Thai in origin, probably mid- to late- 20th C. These were often brought back by GI servicemen serving in Vietnam, and quite a few ended up with Americans stationed in the Philippines.

Why it would have Baybayin writing on the scabbard is unclear, but this is definitely not a Filipino-made dha.
