Had a very early knee mortar show up at the TMCA show this weekend. It is the 2nd oldest one reported
for Nagoya-Nambu and is dated 1934.

I was wondering if anyone knew this inspection mark next to the Nambu symbol?

Yep, the 東 final inspection mark was used by the 1st Tokyo Army Arsenal supervisory office that was looking over the production inspection at the Nambu factory. Would have thought it would be the 條 mark at an early date like 1934, as with the Type 94 pistols. Interesting and a real cool early example find.
