A very nice World War II Japanese Major General’s shoulder board that is in excellent condition. It is constructed of twisted heavy gold braided cord with a single dark bronze star affixed to the top. At the end is a brass chrysanthemum button. The underside is faced with OD green colored material that exhibits some moth damage. The original steel clip for attaching the board to the uniform remains undamaged and intact. A fine-looking insignia to a high-ranking Japanese officer and one that displays beautifully.
