Wow, 1,967 views to this page. I appreciate all who have contacted me with an interest in Inert Japanese Ammunition and Ordnance.

Here's my favorite piece of ordnance. This is a Japanese Suicide Anti-tank "Lunge" mine recovered near Clark Field, Luzon Philippines. For me this is the "Holy Grail" of Japanese Ordnance and probably the best piece in my collection. Enjoy.

no nothing that would be mistaken for the real thing after handling. My $30 Baby Nambu looks great from a distance, but upon closer inspection, its weight gives it away....

IDENTIFIED at last! WWII Nationalist Chinese Type 28 Anti-personnel Rifle Grenade. (Model 1938)
________________________________________________________________________________




I wish to thank Mr. Lin and Mr. Bin for helping me identify these. Mr. Lin is a Chinese WWII military reenactor. Mr. Bin is the leader of a Chinese Military reenactor Group here in the US. He is a Chinese weapons historian, collector, writer and also the webmaster of:

http://www.chinesefirearms.com/

China Theature WWII reenactor group Page: (the Type 28 launcher and rifle grenade are shown)

http://www.pbase.com/the_kampfer/20071116

This is a Chinese Nationalist Type 28 (Model 1938) anti-personnel rifle grenade used in the Type 28 cup launcher. There's also a phosphorus Type 28 rifle grenade as well. It has a cylindrical unserrrated sheet metal warhead with the same neck and wooden tail. Both the AP and Phosphorus types are Chinese designed and made.


This is a very interesting piece of ordnance. The quality is unusually good for Chinese late 30's-early 40's vintage ordnance. I'm fortunate to have these.

Two of these were recovered in China a few years ago. The third and best specimen came out of an old collection misidentified as Japanese experimental. Later, this grenade was owned by the late RC Nolte, a well know Japanese militaria dealer. I saw this grenade in a box under Mr. Nolte's table back in the 80's. Twenty something years later I now own it. It's funny how things work out.

Patience..............

Hello.

If all goes as planned I should be displaying Rare Japanese Inert Ordnance and Military flags at the 2010 Max Militaria Show, Monroeville Convention center, Monroeville PA 7 miles east of Pittsburgh. (Thurs Nov 30, Oct 1,2 & 3) The dates are Thursday Nov 30 (Max members and table holders only), Friday, Sat (public), Sunday (Max members only) There will be 1,500 tables. I believe this is one of the best all Militaria shows in the country.

Here's the MAX website: http://www.themaxshow.com/main.htm

The Monroeville convention center (next door to the old EXPO building) http://themaxshow.com/conventioncenter.htm

Note: Before you travel you have to verify the dates, days and times at the max website.



At the Max, look for the flags pictured below. These will be hanging behind my display. The First flag is an incredibly rare WWII Imperial Japanese Prince(and family) flag. One of my very best. You rarely see Imperial flags with the Emperor's Chrysanthemum. This is a fantastic flag.




I will be displaying several Large Inert Japanese anti-tank/anti-boat mines, a Giant Ceramic mine, a suicide anti tank "Lunge" mine, an experimental anti-tank rocket projectile, a massive inert 150mm Japanese artillery 80 lb projectile, a nearly complete Japanese Deactivated Flame thrower, Japanese Admiral flags, Secretary of the navy flags and lots of other goodies. Also on display will be some of the rarer types of Inert Japanese grenades.


See you at the MAX!

Backlog in correspondence.

I receive a lot of emails from this page. I'm doing my best keeping up with correspondence but I find myself always behind. I often reply same day but sometimes it could take a week for me to get back to you. Don't take it personally if I'm a bit slow in responding.

Also, when asked to identify and appraise the value of ordnance please keep in mind many factors influence value. The economy, condition, completeness, variation, your location in the country and where you live in the world influence or determine selling price. Prices and perceived value vary greatly. There's no guarantee you will find a buyer at the price I suggest. As of late the value of many kinds of collectibles is down due to the economy. Japanese Ordnance prices are down, now is the time to buy.

Lastly, please consider this: I don't charge for appraisals. When asked questions I first check my collection, read some of my reference books, type up emails, take pictures, all this takes time. If I help ID your stuff and point out rarity what can you do for me in return? This is my suggestion: I do you a favor I am asking you to return the favor......you do for me, I do for you. Fair enough? Sounds fair to me!


Thanks!

Jim, many thanx for all the effort you put into this thread. I have read through it a few times , to catch up, I learn something new each time. I can't fathom the amount of time it has taken you to collect and put this together.

Again, thank you!
Chuck.

.

Hello all,

Its been some time since I've posted pictures of new Japanese material. Here's some pictures of original Japanese ceramic and wood box Type 3 mines. These are real and the Wood box type is very rare. The wooden Type 3 has American soldier applied Japanese script. It reads in part: "Type 3 b" and the number "15" with two other characters. There's a black rubber fuze adapter nailed to the inside. Lucky to have this one.

Enjoy.
