In WWII my Grandfather was in the Pacific and in 1944 he cut this small 3 inch by 1.5 inch piece from the Rising Sun emblem of a wrecked Japanese Zero. My Grandfather was a Commodore in the Navy and he was in the Phillipines and was brought to the site of the downed airplane in July of 1944. The back is metallic color, and the metal is thin, but strong.
I wonder if there are a few of these out there, what they're worth and any more information you might know about the subject?
