Thank you for the response! I am quite puzzled by this rifle, which is a Type 38,  as this marking is on the top of the receiver where it should say "38 Type" and there instead are no other markings, including serial numbers, etc. It was also my understanding that the Isawa Jyuko arsenal only produced Type 99 rifles between 1940 and 1945....any thoughts on this? Thanks!

Yep, you are right about type 99. 

Here you will find another piece with the very same mark.

The owner described it as civilian (training) type.

今回の調達分である実物の38式歩兵銃型・伊澤式教練銃です。民間型ですが戦時中の実物につき重厚感があります。
機関部である尾筒には民間型である伊澤式という打刻が入っております。正規型の38式歩兵銃ではないので、菊の御紋はありません

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
