Hello all, a very fortunate buy yesterday. Salty, out of the woodwork, never in a collection grouping. A very nice Papa Nambu with both Tokyo and TGE marks. The Papa holster is in undamaged condition and Navy marked inner clamshell. The type 44 is abit beatup but functions well. The katana is full lenght 28.5" and the tang is unmarked and in great condition. Keep searching there are items to be splintered out of the woods. Best, Bill Bourque

Nice grouping! I'd love to see some close ups of the papa pistol (both sides) if possible. Thanks in advance.

Hello, here is a pic taken quickly before the pistol entered legal transferance. It is unique as it has a Tokyo Gas&Electric stamp on the top reciever and the Tokyo Arsenal on the side. I will be able to provide more pics next week. Best, Bill
