Mountings:  Leather wraped saya is in nice condition except the stitching at between the koi guchi and hanger are ripped out but this can be repaired.  The leather at the kogiri is worn through and this is probably not repairable because the leather has shrunk with age.  The D-handle is in fine condition.  The habaki is one piece copper with a silver wash the is mostly gone.  It is starting to split at the front of the habaki but it is still storng and holds the koshirae together tight.
