WWII samurai sword found in Biliran –
Genuine WW2 soldier issue Samurai sword found in Biliran Island.
 The shin guntō (新軍刀?, "New Army Sword") was a weapon and badge of rank used by the Imperial Japanese Army between the years of 1935 and 1945.
Matud pa sa mga Historians daghan ang ingon ani nga WW2-era Japanese swords. Military issue para sa mga officers from Lieutenant up dunay issue na sword. Ang worth depende sa original nga tag iya name, rank, kung sikat ba. otherwise, mora ra pod na sa atong sundang. =)
kung dunay nakit an na antique samurai sword sa Biliran posibilidad ba nga may Yamashita treasure? according to my source Kung diin nabiyaan, dili necessary nga dunay Yamashita Treasure.
According to sword-buyers-guide.com. Most Shingunto are usually available at around US$500 to $600 price point (and up) depending on their quality and condition.
 And I found out that this WWII Kai Gunto Japanese Naval Officer's sword is about $2950 to $5,750 (and up) US Dollars.
