I recently posted about beginning to build a modest WWII collection. Didn't really start out to do so, but each if my purchases have fallen in my lap, I didn't go looking for them. Well, it's happened again. I got an e-mail from a friend about his friend wanting to sell a Japanese Nambu Type 14.
My friend is getting the gun for me to look at, so I don't yet know it's condition. What I know at this point is the date, 18.9. Did a little research, found out how to translate this, it was made in Sept. 1943. It is a first series Nagoya Arsenal. Further research indicates this was the second highest production year for the Type 14.
Based on the information I have, can anyone give me some approximate values based on if the condition is 50%, 60%, etc? I know it will be totally contingent on condition, and how bad the seller really wants to sell it. I have hardly ever seen one of these for sale in the Birmingham, AL area, and didn't pay any attention to them at the time. Any input would be appreciated!
