Default Vietnam Souvanir Dha Collection

I've been kinda-sorta collecting these things for years. The first two I got from my wife's grandfather, who brought them back from his time in Southeast Asia. Picked up the pair of smaller ones this weekend, along with the spear whatsitz. Most, were bought in Thailand, while on R&R. I remember my friends dads bringing them home. Found the solid bronze Thai Buddha in the trash this morning. That's what prompted the photos. I've owned quite a few others over the years, but didn't hang on to them. Either badly damaged, or like the heavily carved ones, I just don't like 'em.

The one with the entire scabbard wrapped, is the only one like that I have seen. And one question: What is the marking in the close-up. Looks like initials. Or is it something else?
