This is a strange item, the silver colored plaque on the hat of this "extremely happy" older gent. reads " Washington D.C." "The Capitol" . The bottoms marked "Made In Japan" . Any ideas????

    Interesting that it says Washington DC CAPITAL instead of CAPITOL... Maybe one of those Japanese translation problems! He's very, uh, charming, Mikie!

    rather common big mouth smoker ashtray, unfortunately it looks like the bee on the nose has lost his wings :-(
    hard to find with wings intact
