I think you got a cracker (good one) there. Is this your first Kukri, they can be addictive.

For sure, especially of the whole blade outside the really cool scabbard. Shame the auxiliary tools are missing.

I'd bet it has the older continuously curved spine rather than the newer ugly broken back 'kneed' spines found on newer 'modern' ones.

Cool, if those silver disks are coins, they may be able to be dated and give an idea of the date the scabbard was made (it's after the earliest coin) tho the Khukuri may be earlier.
