Presented here is an authentic copper commemorative medal from the Imperial Japanese Navy, marking the initial victory in the China Incident, a military conflict between Japan and China that began with the Marco Polo Bridge Incident in 1937-38. Guaranteed to be genuine, this item offers a unique glimpse into the past. While numerous commemorative medals related to the China Incident can be seen from the Army, those from the Navy are rare! The medal shows signs of use, including some discoloration, rubbing, and dirt due to age.
This rare piece from the early period of the China Incident is a must-have for any serious collector of military or naval memorabilia.
