These are original WW II Japanese items that made their way to the states from several veterans. These are items that a soldier would carry in his haversack and use on a daily basis. This includes chopsticks and wooden carrying case, wooden rice bowl, sunglasses, saki cup, razor kit with mirror, photos, ID disk, cigarettes, hand painted sweetheart handkerchief, and a good luck talisman to protect him from bullets.

    Don't know how, but you locate the best stuff ever.
    I can't believe some of the things you show is still around.
    Keep on hunting and good luck.
