    Found early this morning for 5 bucks, reversible in very fragile condition but what a cool find. 5 minutes later a guy offered me 250-, 5 minutes after that I bought a VN First Aid Kit from the same vendor and he told me another picker had already informed him that I scored big time. Just goes to show you what a dog eat dog world it is out there picking. There's a jealous busy body DH in every crowd. Notice how it says CANP FUJI instead of CAMP FUJI.

    Do you know when it dates from ? Going purely on the tank silhouette, I'd say mid to late 60's.

    Yeah, they were at Fuji 1956-57, Think that's an M-46 Patton

    Good score. An easy grand sold to the right Japanese buyer. Way to go!

    Passed it along with some meat left on the bone. But at least I didn't take the first two offers just minutes after buying it, 200- and 400-
