I was shown this sword yesterday, and I have no clue as to what information might be on the tang. This item will be sold, however I would like to know what it says, before I make an offer. It seems that the I didn't get any pics of the blade it's self, but it looked to be in reasonable condition, to my untrained eye.
Thanks in advance, Fairlane1

If the signature was real, the smith was active in the Muromachi era, so it would be a 15c koto, but I beleive the signature is gimei and much later than Muromachi, probably shinto, about 300 years old or so.
