Insignia worn by the Philippine Scouts who surrendered to the Japanese in May of 1942.
Scarce distinctive unit insignia hallmarked “N.S. Meyer.” This Interwar period to early WWII years, was worn by the Philippine Scouts. This unit surrendered to the Japanese Army in May of 1942 with the fall of Corregidor.
Very good- fine condition. The gilt is more subdued in color, as the flash makes it look much brighter. (priced reasonably as this insignia has records of selling over $150.00 recently).
