WWII IJA Japanese Personal Bag Pouch
While the pouches themselves are not really rare or expensive (I paid ¥300 for mine last year), it is incredibly difficult to locate one with all the paperwork. From time to time I'll see them with a few books and such but I have never seen one as complete as this. Imperial Japanese soldiers used these pouches to carry all their personal paperwork as part of their uniform equipment. An exceptional example of a complete bag from WWII.
