You are bidding on a SUPERB example of a WW2 Imperial Japanese Army Radio Transceiver! Brought back by a US Serviceman, this was installed in various Tanks and Armored Vehicles, and Radio Trucks!
Made of brass and aluminum, this is a VERY RARE example! Some slight wear, marks, and paint flaking, due to the age, but nothing that detracts. The veteran added some English translations to the front, but these markings can easily be rubbed off, if one wished. This is SPECIFIC to Tanks, Armored Vehicles, and Radio Trucks, due to the shock mounts that attach to the side. Sadly,the rubber has hardened over time (typical for Japanese rubber), so they have all come off. The mounts are VERY similar to the US Jeep Shock/Vibration Mounts, so they could repaired if one wished. 100% COMPLETE, it also has all the original tubes. The data plate is 100% INTACT and clearly indicates:
Tokyo Shibaura Electronics, Co., Ltd.
Telecommunications Industry Branch Company, Amazu Factory
I have not found any information online in regards to this specific radio, but I have shown a VERY similar tanker Radio set-up in the last image. Like most Japanese WW2 radios, this is VERY RARE, and would make a PERFECT addition to any Japanese collection!

——————- ABOUT ME —————–
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
