The top one in this photo has a Japanese inventory tag, but no Japanese markings, the middle one has faint Japanese markings on the back strap, the lower one has the Nagasaki registration markings mentioned in my post above.Great piece, first I have seen with a Japanese history. How about some pictures from these other examples being talked about for a comparison??
Here is a closer picture of the rear sight. The shine makes it difficult to photograph.The rear sight on that bottom one is unusual!
That's nice Chip.Chaineux photos as promised.
