What does this mean?

Dear James,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be a probably Vietnamese single-edged sword with a scabbard. The leather scabbard is decorated with floral decor and the design of the handguard is comparable with Guom swords from Vietnam. It was probably made in the 19th or 20th century. The scabbard has an inscription naming "Morris D Austin".
Comparable objects were recently offered and sold on the international auction market.
This piece is in good condition and no severe damage is visible in the images.
A fair market estimation would be between 200 to 400 USD.
This estimate is based on recently recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
George
