Not sure if it's for IJN, but with a compass on top is very interesting.
Also the strap seems undamaged.
The cap stamped new designed approved by Japan Government.

1st one I have seen. Nice.
Any chance of having a close up shot of the top lid of the 2nd example?
Thank you and regards,
I am not sure which cap would be correct, i have seen the chained and unchained versions. If the compass cap is a replacement, it is a good replacement, rare to find in its own.
Can you read the kanji on the second cap, I know it is a little blurry.
I will keep researching, anyone with any info please feel free to post.
very interesting! Would love to see how this plays out. Never seen anything like this either. Could the compass have been added?
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

The cap would be a new design and approved by the government.
So I think, that's a originally installed.
By the way, have no idea why my posted pics are sideways......so please forgive me if you get a neck ache.
