Chinese Maritime Customs sword

This sword is difficult to date as it seems to have been assembled from already existing parts. The proof mark (T) is possibly that of Thurkle. The hole in the folding flap is not the original one which suggests that a new scabbard was made for it which did not fit. This one is too short and the end of the chape has been slightly damaged by the point of the blade. The dragon's-head pommel probably indicates that this sword is earlier than WPN1322, which also had a connection with Thurkle.
