    Default Japanese Fuse Box Souvenir Worth It?

    I came across this today while antiquing. It is priced at $200. Is it worth a buy? I'm redirecting my collecting toward Imperial Japanese memorabilia and hope this would be a nice piece to start off with! It is marked as a "Japanese WW2 Fuse Box". Thank you for your help!

    It is a cool looking box, but I don't know if it is $200 cool.

    Ask yourself. Do you like it? Do you want it? Do you think you will see another?

    The label is a bit humorous if I say so myself. Shipping from San Francisco to a Bowling Ally in NY.

    Price = Desires with one off items like this.

    But just my opinion...others may disagree.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    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

    I am a guy who likes WWII Japanese boxes but even for me $200 is pretty steep. If you can, post a closeup of the kanji for a solid translation and make a decision based on that.

    Here's the photo you needed to post. It's no fuse box, but a box for accessories for a Hitachi DC generator produced in 1944. The actual content was the outer coil assembly. You decide whether that gives you the right buzz.

    Not the most exciting box. Period boxes are great to store things in.
