Cased Japanese Navy 1st Class Gunnery Badge
From the excellent website "Imperial Japan Medals and Badges" dot com: "Awarded to NCOs who were skilled at operating heavy naval artillery. The
course and subsequent test covered all artillery on board naval vessels: large artillery, anti-aircraft artillery, machine guns, etc." The badge is in excellent condition with fine enamel and dark, uncleaned patina. It is contained within its fitted, titled leather case, which shows expected signs of age and wear.
