M08033t2 Imperial Japanese Navy Enlisted Man with Advanced Special Training

This is a WWII Imperial Japanese Navy badge.

As best as I can tell, this 1" diameter badge was worn by an enlisted man in the IJN with advanced specialized training. A blossom with 5 points was worn for less advanced training.

The basic badge is formed by a yellow on black machine woven design. This was cut to shape and glued over a cloth backing. The edges were sewn.

It shows negligible age and wear.

This was part of a large grouping of IJN items I obtained from a picker about 2 years ago.
