Captured Japanese flag

Recommended Posts

I've been offered this captured Japanese flag for sale. It's named to a medic who served in the Pacific and comes with a note saying he took it off a dead Japanese soldier. Does anyone have any idea how much it might be worth or what it says? I don't have a lot of experience with these so I don't want to get taken on it.

Always looking for militaria having to do with the 26th YD, Tank Destroyers, and large size uniforms.

Depending on the provennance, battle, translation, they can range from $175-400. Those are the typical prices I've seen at shows and from dealers. Again, it all depends on the history of the flag, I've seen a few even more than that. That flag looks great, no staining or tears, and the kanji looks legible. Good luck!

Just a reminder, we have a new website for foreign militaria:




That forum has a section for "What's it Worth", and this would be most appropriately posted there.
