A friend of mine recently picked up a T44 Carbine.The Mum has been over stamped with concentric circles.Also there is a large M stamped between th mum and the T44 designation.I know that when arms left the Japanese army the mum's were canceled.Is the CC a common cancellation mark?Also,what does the large M mean?

Thanks.

The CC's are a common cancellation. The large elongnated 'M' normally means 'war reserve' or 'vetrans association'.

Either on a T44 is unusual.

Does the serial number have two 'O's or three in front of the serial?

How about some pictures?

I just got off the phone with him.It's a no series Kokura,first variation bayonet housing.It has 3 0's in front of the serial number.The bolt is mis-matched.the bore is very good.The stock is well used but no cracks or splits.The metal I would rate at about 50% finnish.No dust cover.No cleaning rod in the butt.He would like to know what a reasonable value would be.


Thanks

Sounds like a T 44 taken out of service and marked for reserve status.

A little unusual for a 44, common on other 38 types.

Value depends on too much to say, buying or selling, when, where????

Just for the record, what is the full serial number?

Would still like to see picts of the mum and serial number areas.
