Good day Fontessa

Does your listing have any units for the following sequences

12327 to 12337
12338 to 12344
12346 to 12351
12353 to 12356
12369 to 12375

JACAR lists them as reserved - I was wondering if they were assigned

Thank you in advance

Stuart

Happy New Year Fontessa

In 1940 Japan started using unit codes in China and Manchuria with numbers under 1000 - Is there a list of those codes - I am sure my database in incomplete in that area.

Thank you

Happy New Year Stuart.
Yes. I can send you Unit Code Numbers under 1000 with 8 jpg files. One jpg file on one e-mail. I always attached jpg files to my answers to your questions on AHF. A pdf file is too heavy to attach to an e-mail. If it's okay, please let me know your address to my address I sent you in AHF private message.
