So, what exactly is this Japanese badge? If anyone knows....

 

I think just a badge given to representatives from one of the Japanese puppet states in China for a economic/commerce event hosted by the Japanese. 

 

I think a better translation for the front is Economic Mission to Japan.

 

The kanji above that right under the flags looks like maybe 歓迎 (welcome/reception). 

 

中華民國二十八年 is Republic of China calendar and equals 1939.

 

The flag next to the Japanese one was being used by the Provisional Government of the Republic of China (1937-1940) and the Reformed Government of the Republic of China (1938-1940) at the time.

That's super helpful.....the hanging caduceus drew my eye to it when I looked through this grouping.

 

Thanks for the insights about this group.
