Not sure if it's really collectible or not but I have a model 37 Winchester .410, single shot drop barrell with a Cutts Compensator. My grandfather bought it for my dad used in the early 50's and it was passed down to me.

7.7mm Arisaka Type 99 rifle (complete with sling, dust cover for the bolt, monopod and anti-aircraft sights) - last fired in February 1945, my father acquired it on Iwo Jima
6.5mm Arisaka Type 38 rifle (a gift from my wife's uncle - some how her grandfather acquired it in Oregon when he had an orchard) (my father also acquired one of these when he was in Japan but gave it way)
My sister has the third rifle my father brought back from the war
6.5mm Arisaka Type 44 cavalry rifle (a carbine) with folding bayonet. Never been fired, he got it out a factory or armory when the occupation forces were taking weapons out and destroying them or sinking them at sea.
Alex Reynoso: I am looking for a Naval Museum that might display some of my father's WWII Navy items. I have a scaled model of a PBM-3 that he was a crew member of I believe crew #3. Thanks. firstname.lastname@example.org

Jim Broshot: Since nobody has responded in the last month and a half. The only Naval Museums I have ever been to are in Oregon: Tillamook Air Museum (housed in an old blimp hanger, used to be a Naval Air Museum but seems to have gotten away from that specialty. http:/

Kersh: Tillman's book "The Forgotten Fifteenth" has an account of this attack that may be of interest.
