Found this for sale locally, haven't had a chance to look at it in person. Anyone recognize it? Possibly real or some cheap crap? It's later than what I focus on. Sorry for the terrible pictures, it's all I have for now, trying to get better ones. Thanks.

Looks like a typical Indian tourist sword. These usually have a mild steel blade and a welded rod rat-tail tang. If it's a well-made one, and cheap, it might be worthwhile for scabbard mounts and handle, but on most that I've seen, these are visibly of very poor quality.
