I have not been back to take pics yet...but I'm in negotiations with him.  Where there bring back papers" in WWII?
When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "Stick to the Devil you know."
Rudyard Kipling  1919

Yes there were bringback papers back then.

Usually an Arisaka, with a mum is considered a bringback, after the war the mums were technically supposed to be defaced either by U.S. doctrine or Japanese. Some however didn't get done, which is why they are sought after and command a higher price than a defaced rifle.
I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse......

Leave the gun take the cannoli.

Yes.  For example, AG USFET Form No 33.  Many firearms came back without papers as well, but without the forms, I personally wouldn't pay any extra.
