    Default Please help me Identify This Brass Navy Item

    I found this item at an estate sale. I am guessing it may have something to do with the Japanese navy but I am not sure. I was wondering if anyone has ever seen anything like this before. It was mounted on a plaque and the nut on the back is probably not original to the piece. It measures 3 1/4" wide. Please help.
