Signed Japanese (Army) Meatball Flag

$325.00

Description

One of the most visually appealing items to be collected from the 2nd World War were the personal flags carried by the Japanese soldier for good luck. This example is a perfect representation of such a flag, with a perfect displayable size of 39.5″ wide by 27.5″ tall. There are signatures and good luck slogans written all over the flag as well as a dedication to the original owner. Overall this flag  has a killer field worn look, there are stains from the field and a light yellow patina throughout with a few areas that look like blood stains. The middle of the red sun has a few small moth nips, and there are 2 places where the soldier had repaired it while he was in the field. This is one of the best looking flags I have had the pleasure of owning, if this one could be framed, it would look fantastic on the wall!
