Picked this tin box up at the auction and all of this was inside. Are the pocket knives military in any way. The silver one is marked Kingston the other is marked Imperial, Prov. R.I.

I think those ribbon bars are Japanese?

Great find.

The top knife looks like a typical military issued pocket knife.

The top pocket knife, what is the year stamped at the bottom of the main blade?

I love the Japanese ribbons!  I can't say I have seen unmounted ones before today.  Very nice!

I got this tin box by mistake. My wife knew I wanted something in the group of military things and while I was getting coffee she took it upon herself to bid on the tin box. I would have never posted these here had I known they were Japanese, I didn't have a clue. If it needs to be deleted I understand, sorry.

Couldn't find a date on it anywhere.
