    FYI ... the EM dog tag is from the 220th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Machine Gun Company. The 220th was part of the 35th Division, which spent a lot of time in China and was then transferred to New Guinea in 1944.

    Gotta love the Minatogawa Shrine stamp. Now you just need the shrine blade with it.

    Hi Tom,

    At one time that was the plan but I ended up going the Yasukunito route instead. Now the prices are getting a bit out of hand unless you can locate one out of the woodwork so to speak.

    Here are photos of the three hanko.

    Regards,
