Original WW2 Imperial Japanese Army and Special Naval Landing Force COMPLETE Leather Combat Belt Set with Scare Production Bayonet and Rare Green Canvas Scabbard. An original and complete Imperial Japanese Army leather combat belt set that took me much time and expense to assemble during a period many years ago when I looked for only the very best items for my own collection. My preference is to sell this as a complete set and have a current collector use it to complete their Japanese soldier equipment. Each piece is all original in good vintage condition showing use and expected wear. Type 30 Enlisted Service Belt Leather Combat Waist Belt.Some creasing and surface crazing in spots and surface scuffing but remaining pliable complete with nice brass metal buckle. The sliding loop was lost or discarded as often found on these genuine examples showing field use. A Pair of TWO Leather Front Ammunition Pouches Cartridge Boxes. KOGO both in solid pliable condition with some scuffing and bruising from field use.
One box has Kanji characters inked on the reverse The top lid on one of the boxes is pushed in or warped a little as you can see in the images. Scarce Rear Leather Ammunition Pouch Cartridge Box. Solid pliable condition with some scuffing and bruising from field use.
The oiler is the early desirable first model metal type of iron and brass. Bayonet with Matching Scabbard, Leather Frog and Rare Green Canvas Scabbard Cover.
