In conclusion very interesting door plaque with early wound badge (superimposed and enamelled red) and inscription “Great Japan Wounded Soldier Association Member” (same plaque could be found in Paul’s book at page 152).

Another very interesting example of general wonded association membership badge.

This one in plastic ornamental ( ;)) box with interesting brand label papers.

Yep, another "Good Fortune" badge made by TOMEI in Tokyo ;)

Bummer that reverse photos are "slightly out of focus"...

But it seems that potential buyers couldn't care less - 1 day to go and the price is already sky high!

Cheers,

Nick

And back to this beatiful wounded soldiers association good conduct badge (a.k.a. “distinguished” badge).

Another example of variation in white enamel, but this time with the box.

In the box

Now we have inscriprion on the box and inscription on reverse

It looks like badge in blue enamel is higher class and badge in white enamel is lower one ;)

Comparison of box inscriptions (box cover for blue enamel badge is on the left)
