Mystery Pin

Recommended Posts

If any of you have been to a Comic Convention in the last few years, you may have seen Mystery Boxes being sold.

Some are Themed, other are quite literally random.

Over the weekend at Megacon in Orlando, someone purchased a mystery box that contained alot of items from Star Wars, Star Trek, and Dr Who.

It also held this pin that has stumped people, so I figured I would post it here to see if any of you had a clue.

Google Lens is saying it could be an Imperial Japanese Navy Badge pin, but that is like a 55% match. Nothing like 100% so far.

"Google Lens"... Never knew such a thing existed. Pretty awesome.

Hmm... never encountered any other type of stars when it comes to Japan except the army five pointed star and the merchant marine eight pointed star. Where I know they used six pointed stars was the Austro-Hungarian empire, but probably in a lot of other places as well.

It's apparently some mobile phone thingy.. I tried the regular Google image search, but nothing relevant showed up in the image search.
