Friends,
This documents the Type 38 CC markings for the new boards.
The rifle is from the original "zero" series, serial number 2898.
The Chrysanthemum has been carefully removed.
The remains of the edges of the Chrysanthemum appear at several points outside the larger circle.
Francis Allan, in Japanese Military Rifles by Doss & Ruth White, page A69, defines this as Variation "D/G".
He notes that the character below the circles "may have a broader meaning that just 'school' as is generally accepted."
The rifle is seriously mis-matched.

Dang,
now a concentric circle school rifle? what next?

That is special!

I wonder what the 'experts' think of that?

Oops, my ignorance is showing. All 38's bun marked, but not all 99's.

Are any 99's so marked?
