I just obtained this nice leather pouch & noticed it bears the same date as my rubberized example, both are Showa 15. The leather one is Kokura marked & the other is a Nagoya. For some time now I've started suspecting that Nagoya may have used more rubberized goods than Kokura & certainly at an earlier date. In fact my present T-99 1st series and the other 1st series I recently sold both have rubberized slings original to the rifle. This would be hard to confirm on the slings as the leather ones are so easily moved around. Anyway, this post is mainly a chance to try some photos!
