Hi Bill

Welcome aboard.

Virtually all the poincons you have shared for your sword have been ided. It seems that only the numbers are left to be further explained but if you go back to the original thread, there are some consideration and responses with information.

In yet a third thread, there is the confusion that you have ided the sword as an 1882, when the sword in case is an 1822 that was straightened and marked to 1883.
