Default Oxtail Saber (牛尾刀) for sale

I was planing on selling this blade next year, but I've been advised if it will be for sale in the future, I cannot post it in the normal forum. So here we go, I'll post it up for sale early. This way the specs are recorded for fellow collectors, I want to give you as much information as I can think of, specs I wish I could access when I began collecting blades...

I believe it is Republican Era or late Qing. Probably a high quality training saber. No scabbard, moderately curved, both blade and handle, disc guard has a reinforcing lip forming a dish, cord wrap is dark green currently - unsure if it always was or has faded, wood handle is split construction I think
