Does anyone have an opinion on this. I'm only in it $10, so you can't hurt my feelings. It appears to be brass or bronze. It's about 2.5" by 3/16th"

I missed this topic when you posted it, Geoff....I am not a fittings expert, but i think this is either a replica or maybe a student work, not too old. You will get a more informed opinion over at the Nihonto board.

Looks like a cheap Chinese knock off to my eye - the seppa dai and nakago ana are misshapen and the inner surfaces appear unfinished. That said, if it is decent material - ie. not pot metal (should be easy to judge by the weight) - It would be easy to make something quite pleasing from it, with a bit of file work and texturing...
