Default Scabbard help

Greetings folks!

A friend of mine is getting a takouba reproduced for modern sparring. I was hoping to make a scabbard for him as a gift. What can you folks tell me about their construction? Do they have a wooden or cardboard core, or is it all leather? Are there any written sources on how they were made? And would it be possible for some of you who own one to take a few close up photos for me? I would like to seams, the mouth and the tip.
