5 varieties of the Physical Strength badge, issued by the Ministry of Health.

One is dated 2601 [1941] and two more 2600 [1940]--one of the latter was found
in the original paper envelope. This envelope has the date, the name of the badge,
the class 'beginner level' and 'Ministry of Health.'

The other two are undated. One is made of cloth with a paper backing. I have no
idea if this is an early version or a very late one.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic,
Japan can ONLY send to these three countries, as of April 24:

Canada
United Kingdom
Germany

I CANNOT send to any other country at the moment, sorry.
If you live outside of these areas, you can still purchase from me,
but I will have to hold it for you
until the shipping ban is lifted.
I do not know how long that will be.
