GI Signed WWII Japanese Flag - 27th Division Medical
Very cool signed Japanese WWII Hinomaru flag. Flag has corner tabs typical of WWII production. Has many GI signatures from a medical detachment of the 27th Infantry Division. This was the first stateside division deployed after the Pearl Harbor attack. The red center disc has bleed a bit probably due to ferric compound in the dye. There are five spots of staining that were probably all bunched into the same corner when the flag was folded and in the original owner's pocket. Probably a combat related stain. Very cool piece of history. The flag is mounted on thick poster board but I will have to remove to ship.
