First, thanks for all the help with identifying some of the stuff I don't have my dad's notes on, I really appreciate it! I don't have any info on this sword, but from the very little I know on ID'ing fakes, I know one is the rings. The rings are the first thing that stuck out because they have a sloppy weld, they aren't seamless like most of the real swords I've seen. Then when I started taking pictures I noticed a lot of flash inside the metal guard. Now I know Tiffany has always been known for quality so I would imagine even in war time they would take a little time to file the flash off the detail of the guard. You can see little bubbles of excess metal inside the guard detail in the following pics. Maybe I'm wrong, but that doesn't seem right to me. My dad didn't have any notes on this sword, so I would also like to know the make even if it is fake so I'll know what it's supposed to be.
