Japanese Sword Katana Army

help identify authenticity

I am as of recent, a new joined member of the nihonto club. I became a member in hopes to share the Mei of my Katana and authenticate it, either value or if it's genuine. It appears to be handmade but possibly afterwards was sent off to a factory for finishing, that is unless the swordsmith himself devoted over time into the tang of the sword. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested, I am in a bit of a tight hassle over money and wouldn't have a problem selling the sword to someone whom collects and will take care of it.

Is it real?


Can you help me with info regarding this sword?
Is it real? From 17th century? Is it made by MINAMOTO TADAYUKI?

Can you estimate a price for it?

I would like to buy it from a private seller and I tried to contact a Japanese Association from my country but nobody knows details about swords.

Thanks for your help!
