It is a Mitsubishi ship building Inc. pin for I believe an employee that has been with the company for over 10 years. It is from the Nagasaki ship building facility, which btw, still has a heavy presence in the city to this day. I think it is a neat pin, but I don't know if there is a big market for pins like yours.
That is interesting when do you believe this pin dates back to Thanks A lot
Yes, a 10+ years work acheivement award by Mitsubishi Shipbuilding LTD, Nagasaki Shipyard.
I can't find anything in English or Japanese. Since the three "hishi" are yellow instead of Mitsubishi's red ... I wonder if the 20 year pin had the three red hishi?
Found this history of the mon used. IF it is accurate, the badge dates from 1964
