So far as I know, this is 1949 repack of WWII Japanese Type 38 6.5. Can anyone add more information? If I opened this carton, would the cartridges be on stripper clips? George
I have been in contact with a student of Chinese language. Here is what she was able to tell me. The clearer characters in the top left corner are like the Japanese saying “Type 38.” The clear readable-line-characters just above the “1949” date box says; first two characters “Northeast”, the following two indicate a “military region”, and the final three are a “factory specific to military supply.” Please any comments.
