    I would take them all. Then you have some items to trade for other treasures in the future.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    Is it just me, or does the last character look
    like a person wielding a sword.........?

    Hi Steve,

    I can't speak to the sword comment but the five kanji you have posted would read Ki Buun Chokyuu I believe, not just Buun Chokyuu.

    As for the flags ... while I like the fact flag #3 has the hanko (which may be identifiable if shown clearly) I would pick flag #1 for it's bold well defined characters, visual balance and the less often encountered "Serve the Nation with ultimate loyalty" slogan.

    However, there is an old saying that can be applied here ... Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder.

    Regards,
    Stu

    Hmmm, I see that Guy posted the expression the same way as you did Steve. Perhaps my reading of it is incorrect.

    Guy, will you clarify please ... and thanks.

    My bad! Cutting and pasting, I forgot to translate the "prayers for" part.

    I liked number three as well, but after seeing the translation, and knowing that, I kinda started liking number one as well. Just buy them all, it leaves no room for regrets.

    Thanks for the clarification Guy. I still struggle with kanji (as you know) and want to make sure I am reading and understanding correctly each step along the way. As always your assistance with these translations is greatly appreciated.

    gentleman, I want to thank everyone for the input. I think I will be going with number 3. Any ideas on some of the writing on it. Marty

    I think #3 seems like a nice choice as well, just going by the general aesthetics of it it's definitely the "sharper" looking of the three!

    Okay .... I'll quit here ... If you buy this one let us know and I'll finish. There are about five more that I can translate [with research, which is why I'm stopping now -- have office work to finish.
