    Default Japanese Silver (???) Shield

    Hi guys. I have the opportunity to purchase this. It's coming from a large militaria collection I have been purchasing. It's a little bigger than a dinner plate. I'm not sure if it is military related or not... So any help would be appreciated.

    Hi,

    It's a civilian medical related gift plate from may be Taiwan, or Hong Kong. They are written in Traditional Chinese.

    Best regards,

    Taka,

    Thank you very much. So it appears not to be military related at all and from your response not Japanese at all either. It however may be silver... in that case there is still value there for me. Thank you!

    Matt,

    You're welcome.
    Looks like it was made with stainless steel. Does it stick to a magnet (weak)? Is it heavy?

    Regards,
    Taka

    Honestly I haven't done any tests on it to see what it is. I will get a chance to test it tomorrow.
