Very rare Axis powers pin. Small...but historically important. As you can see, the enamel/paint is in
poor condition. So I am asking for offers instead of setting a price. The reverse reads 'Inoue English
Correspondence School.' This school was established in 1923 and eventually became the
present-day Gakubun-Sha, a large correspondence school offering a wide variety of courses.

I have no idea why such a school would make such a pin.

I almost threw these away when I opened the box, but there was a paper insert inside that described what these are. These are glow-in-the-dark badges to
be used by civil air defense officials, security officials, etc when guiding people to safe places. It asserts that a 5-second exposure to a light source keeps
the badge lit for 30 minutes. Not sure about that, but anyway. Both badges have some residue in the center, so maybe they were designed in the shape of the
Japanese flag.
