Default Old Jian by ebay

Yesterday ended this unusal Jian (?) sword by ebay, congrats for the happy winner. I think it's worth to shown here for future reference and secondly because I want to learn and know more about this sword. Could this be a Yunnan made sword? The guard is similar to my dao: http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showt...ighlight=yunnan so my guess.
Would like to read what the experts for Chinese swords think about this sword.

The quatrefoil guard resembled that of an odd Chinese knife I posted sometime back.

This jian has some great age, and is different enough in the hilt to where one of the experts should be able to provide something.

Hope you are not wrong, maybe Philip Tom can tell us something. And I hope also that the thread don't end at this point.
