You are bidding on an EXCELLENT example of a WW2 Imperial Japanese Army Field Telephone Handset! This was used in conjunction with the Type 92 Trench Phone, as used by the Japanese military throughout WW2!
Made of a wood, steel, and aluminum, this phone and secondary earphone is in EXCELLENT used condition! Comes complete as a headset mike, a second headset, and the line connections. Both the earphone and the microphone are together with a cast metal horn extending down for the mouth piece (they separate in order to fit into the storage case). There is also a “push to talk” lever along one side of the assembly. Secondary ear phone comes with the RARE head strap! Data plate and manufacture markings are throughout. The leather case is the original to this set, and comes with a a screwdriver / tools.
Unfortunately, the lid has come away due to the age, and the bottom is a bit loose. This set was used as a secondary unit for the Type 92 Trench Phone, so commanders and other radio men could listen in on the conversations. This is the ONLY one I have ever seen of its type, making it a VERY RARE and PERFECT item for any collection or display!

——————- 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.
