    Seabee Special ... with pseudo-Japanese fake kanji.

    Thanks Guy, I actually like the idea of owning an authentic fake.

    I agree, a Seabee special, however be aware that both the red coloring as well as the black kanji can run even on authentic examples.

    It's so bad it's good! Makes me smile. I'd buy it just for that reason.

    Although a fake, it is a genuine piece of history from the era. I saw one once where the creator was likely a Japanese American as the kanji was written properly. The mistake he made was dating the flag August 8th, 1942 instead of a Japanese Showa date.
