The formerly missing Kokuhô by Kunimune

IMAGE LOST.  Unfortunately some of the information on this page from Jim Kurrasch's website has been lost. Please contact me if you have a Nanka Token Kai copy that I can re-construct it from or any images of the missing sword

The tachi on the previous pages shows some of the problems with this search for the Missing Important Nihontô. In spite of the fact that it was made Kokuhô in July
of 1927, and having been taken from the Terukuni Shrine, in Kagoshima, it was not on the list of these missing swords. But fortunately it was found by Doctor
Compton, and returned to Japan. I am talking about the Kokuhô tachi made and signed by Kunimune in the late 13th. century.
