How rare are the ones that did not have the chrysanthemum ground off?

Rarer. Though sometimes it's just struck through.

Worth more since it essentially proves it's a bringback prior to Japanese surrender.

Not rare, rather uncommon. The Chrysanthemum is the symbol of the divine emperor and was to be defaced before being surrendered. I would say I see 1 intact for every 10 Jap rifles I see.

They are not THAT rare but harder to find than one without it. You want rare.......go looking for a real Deathshead stamped Gew98.

If you have the monopod and dust cover for the bolt, add more to the value.

Having the chrysanthemum intact adds quite a bit of value

As I recall MacArthur allowed the Japs to deface many small arms before surrender to help them save face.

The reason I am asking is that a young man (bubblehead IIRC) from King's Bay Naval Station had an Arisaka at the range today, complete with chrysanthemum and all matching numbers:







The guy he got it from (for a Taurus pistol but I can't recall which one) had done this to the rifle:



Personally, I am appalled at this especially given that it most likely is a bring back.

I know, many won't care, but this kind of stupidity should not be dismissed.

The kid ain't crazy about what was done but he got it cheap.

He is gonna look into trying to restore it to it's original configuration. I hope he can find the part.

Doesn't matter how much NFA I have, C&R's brought me into firearms and I still love them. Mine has the chrysanthemum destroyed but at least wasn't butchered like that poor rifle.

Also, thank god I handload my own ammo and can still shoot it.

Not sure now, but a few years back the prices on them shot up. Seems the Japanese were buying them and having them deactivated and using them as displays.

Rare..but not that rare. I own 3 Arisakas..2 have the mum...one is ground. Rifles brought home as trophys through official channels were supposed to be ground mummed...Official military shit so as not to offend the all-mighty emporer. This after the war...nobody that wasn't Japanese military gave a shit if mums were ground or not before combat ended in the Pacific

It ain't like the last Jap alive on some shit-hole island gathered all the Arisaka rifles and ground tthe mums off before getting his head blowed off with a Garand.....Mums got ground off at surrender(the big one)..and as a requirement for bringing a Japanese musket home as a trophy through official channels....lots of Arisakas came to the US fully mummed...only after the war were mums ground-off to help ease the mighty emporer's butt-hurt......

I have 2 Type 99's, one with intact mum. Plus a Type I that never had a mum. They were issued to the Navy/Marines as plain rifles. Only the Imperial Army rifles had the mum.

My father told me he bulldozed piles of Arisakas on Okinawa after the surrender. I've also seen a picture somewhere on the net of a barge filled with surrendered Arisakas taken out to sea and dumped over the side.

JFC I hope he beat the former owner to death with a cactus...

Whats up with the screws in the receiver? Part of the bubba job?

I've got a Type-38 in "good" or "pretty good" condition, mum intact but dustcover missing. When my dad was a kid, he yanked it out of a trash can on the east side of Chicago, used his shoe laces to tie it to his bike's handlebars, and too it home...

The former owner was USMC, killed the former owner on Guadalcanal, took it home, and hung it over the fireplace over his wife's constant protests. When he died she just threw it out....

I find something nostalgic about sporterized WWII bring backs. That is, the ones that a G.I. brought home, found he needed a hunting rifle, and modified his enemies weapon to suit his needs. There's a historic appeal in that. Not some imported C&R rifle that's been Bubba'd. It's all in the provenance, as far as I'm concerned.

My Type 99 w/intact mum was brought home from Guam by an Army photographer. He rode in the belly of converted P-38 Lightnings and took photos of occupied islands before invasions. He was my wife's step-father.

The Type I was brought back from Okinawa by a Marine Raider friend of my MIL. He's still alive.

To the serious collector the Mums don't really matter if they are ground on a rare example.

Type, Series and Manufacturer means more as does the presence of a dust cover, aa sights, and mono-pod if it was issued with those. Find you a late "rope-hole" stocked Type 99 and the damn Mum coud be completly gone and it would not matter. Same with the take-down models and carbines.

As a accumulator of Jap. rifles I prefer them just struck instead of ground on the mundane specimens but I would not pay much of a premium for a intact Mum. Heck a sling would be something I'd pay a lot extra for first as orgional slings are hard to find and expensive.

A ground Mum is just a good way to convince those that don't know any better to reduce the price on a desirable rifle.

Not long ago Southern California Gun (since closed due to ATF and CA DOJ ) had a number of Type 38s and Type 99s some with mums, some without. IIRC one Type 30 as well. The prices were all on the low side of $300 IIRC.

My wifes grandfather served in the USMC in WW2 and brought one back. Last time I saw it was out in her uncles barn rusting....pissed me off big time. Her uncle has no respect for history.

Told him he should clean it up and keep it in the house but he pretty much blew me off.

I've got two of them, a 38 and 99 i believe, in pieces at the house. Sporter jobs from the 60s that were never finished. Both with unground mums. Thinking of finishing the job someday, but I need something odd to do to them. Maybe 300blk or 300 savage or something weird.
