    Difficult to read the characters from 9 to 3 o'clock. Perhaps better lighting might make them more visible. A rubbing might work as well.

    The three characters from 7 to 5 o'clock are Courage, Virtue, Knowledge.

    Hi,

    Managed to get the characters already, hope you can see the characters: 满洲帝国童子勇联会-智仁勇 if I am not wrong.

    Thanks for sending on the rest of the characters. I literally translate as, Brave(Heroic) Boys Association of the Manchurian Empire. I guess Imperial Manchurian Boys Scouts Association is closer in line with what the official English translation was.

    Don't really collect. As a Japanese-to-English translator, I enjoy helping out with Japanese items.
