Two additional examples of Nakajima factory in Oda badge.

Interesting that both came from six hundred (and one that we already have in this thread (post #117) has number 611 on its reverse).

# 614

I bet that these badges were manufactured by Mint ;)

Hi everyone,

Here is mine that I just picked up. A Type II, Kosho version.

Ok, this is for Nick (LOL!), but if I have read correctly, pronunciation for Military Wound Badge is: Shoigunjinsho Also, if you could be so kind, could you provide the Kanji for it as well... :cheeky:

Thanks!

Jason
