    Default Japanese Badge and Case?? What is it??

    Hey guys I am not sure what I have here. This came in a grouping to a US vet that served in the Pacific theater so it could be Japanese but I am not sure. Sorry if it is very common I am just not up on Pacific theater items. Thanks ahead of time.

    Ostvolk medal. Nice find.

    These where given to the Eastern volunteers, and later also to the Germans fighting/serving with them.

    Thank you very much guys I had no idea! Shows what I know...Lol. There are 2 of these in the grouping both with the original case. Make you wonder how a pacific war US vet got them. Maybe a trade from a buddy??

    Thanks again for your help.

    Yes a trade, or someone- maybe an old warbuddy knew he had more interest of these things, and gave them to him for safe keeping.

    I see the gold colour is strong on this award. This makes it even more attractive in any collection, usually the gold or silver colour flakes of and leaves a dull grey zink colour underneath.

    This is a keeper in any collection.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    I knew a PTO vet who gave me a unissued BEVO Heer eagle and said his brother who served in the ETO gave to him. So I'm not surprised to see a ETO award in the possession of a PTO vet. They did trade when they got back home!!!!
