uplandmod Posted May 3, 2012 Author Share #26 Posted May 3, 2012 Thanks you for your comment and your help 'FG! I troll Japanese websites looking for Japanese 60's music and 80's anime model kits and every once in awhile I will look for Militaria, you figure that with how long the US has been there there would be a ton of Militaria there but I don't ever find nothing of significance. (there was a weird army wool shirt that had some strange stenciling on the back, I will have to find the picture and get everyone's opinion.) This pouch had been on a site for over a year but I never wanted to break down and pay the ¥16000 for it until I found out how rare it was. One day I went on and I saw that the price had dropped! It was now ¥14000 and even with the terrible exchange rate and broker fees I was able to get it under $200.00, a bargain if you ask me. This one was a long time coming...I'm glad I know some Japanese to make this one work out and bring it back home or else I would have been still high and dry. I've only seen the early type once for sale back in the 1990's at Kaiser Bills. If I would have known it would have taken 15 years to find another I would of have charged it (It was only in the $70 range). I just need a few more odds and ends but the two big bumps (First aid pouch and Camo Shelter Half) in completing my Iwo Jima display are purchased and it is all down hill from here.
