Original Japanese WWII 1939 dated Leather Arisaka Ammunition Pouch with Personalized Fabric Pieces

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice example of a hard to find Japanese WWII Leather Ammo pouch for Arisaka Rifles. This is the second pattern, with a second securing loop over the closure strap, which made it much more stable. These were usually worn 2-3 on a belt, and are very hard to find, even as just a single pouch. The inside of the lid on this example is marked, bearing date 昭 十 四, read SHOWA (current reigning emperor) Juu-Yon Nen (14th year of reign - 1939). It is very rare to see markings still intact on these!

This example is in very good condition, with a lovely worn look. The leather is a bit stiff, but all of the stitching looks intact, and the closure strap works correctly. Even better, there are some lovely souvenirs inside the pouches, in the form of pieces of fabric.

One piece looks to be a label cut out from a uniform or cap, and has a date on the right side reading 昭和 十六 年, for the 16th Year of the Showa Era, 1941. Another piece of fabric looks to be a handwritten label of some type. The last piece is a hand stitched statement or date, which we are unfortunately unable to read.

This is a set that really has some fantastic possibilities for further research! Ready to display with your Arisaka rifle!
