  1. Navy Proficiency Badges: How were they worn?

    what was this navy badge for?
  2. These Super Rarities in Gold

    Uncertain if a special visitor viewing can be arranged. Prior written request can't hurt. Especially if your doing "research'.. Can't recall if there are any Japanese matchlocks on display. Certainly nothing bolt action
  3. These Super Rarities in Gold

    I'd guesstimate that only 50% of the museums holdings are on display at any given moment. We have an amazing collection of Japanese art & in equally astounding collection of Japanese weapons in our Arms & Armor section. If anyone wants to come for a visit & a tour PM me
  4. Great presentation Nick! Would all these awards & badges have been manufactured in Japan?
  5. These Super Rarities in Gold

    Nick I work at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art! Come for a visit
  6. Type 45 Japanese uniform

    true type 45 when issued had red piping on sleeve cuff. This was later removed in the field
  7. Japanese Flag

    I'd say it"s actually non military WW2. Either a veterans, civic or school related. Translation will tell
  8. Japanese Naval Sword (I think)

    I can't tell you much more then you already know. It's a WW2 kaigunto navy sword with protective leather saya(scabbard) cover. The blade MIGHT be an older blade. Are there any stamps on tang like an anchor or? If you PM me detailed, clear pics of blade signature I might be able to help find out the makers name & age of blade
  9. 2nd class of Golden Kite for the God of War

  11. Golden Kite breast badge with bring back papers on Ebay

    I agree! I'm shocked at the bargain price BUT not surprised. Tough economic times & too close to holidays. The breast badge is one of the only medals I've dreamnt of owning. An iconic medal

  16. Golden Kite Locket

    I won this today. Appears to be a navy sweethearts locket with Golden Kite on top. Likely hanging loop is missing. Box is incorrect too. I collect navy/SNLF items so this spoke to me.http://www.ebay.com/itm/120956561844?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649
