NEED HELP IDENTIFYING THIS BADGE.

ANY POSSIBILITY THIS COULD HAVE BEEN AWARDED TO US MILITARY ???

PICTURE OF THE BACK IS POOR.  BAGDE IS STAMPED OF THIN METAL WITH TWO THREADED SCREW POSTS SODERED ON THE BACK.  THERE IS EIGHT RAISED JAPANESE OR CHINESE CHARACTERS IN STRAIGHT LINE BELOW POSTS AT BOTTOM OF BADGE.  BADGE HAS INCISED NUMBER "3047" BELOW CHARACTERS.  BADGE IS APPROX. 1 3/4 INCHES BY 7/8 INCHES.

THANKS FOR ANY HELP PROVIDED.

Coat of arms for the Republic of China Army (not the commies).  Probably a cap badge.

Ditto

 

As it now identified as being from our Nationalist Chinese allies (Formosan/Taiwanese) and is non-US militaria, the topic is closed
