What does this mean?

Dear Scott,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry and I wish you a Happy New Year 2022. My sincere apologies for the huge delay with the appraisal.

The presented object appears to be an Imperial Japanese Type 32 M1899 cavalry trooper sword. This sword comes with a black lackered steel scabbard and the matching number 37588. The sword known as the 1886/1899 was used and issued from the Russo-Japanese War of 1905 until the World War II era. Such pieces came in high numbers as trophies by GI to the US after the WWII.
This piece is in medium to good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 150 to 300 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
