Extremely Rare WWII Japanese Army General Officer's Tassel in the correct colors for General Grade, in excellent condition. It is quite evident that this tassel was carried and used by a very high ranking general who saw very little "in theater" combat.
The three gold lines of threads are in excellent condition, no stains, no frays, 99.9% perfect. Only one thread has an insignificant blemish. The tassel measures 20" overall. We have seen less than 15 of these tassels in the last 40+ years of collecting. This is guaranteed to be a true generalís tassel... General Grade Tassels are nearly impossible to find today and will get harder to find as years go by.
red/gold tassels for general grade officers
red/brown by field grade officers (majors and colonels)
blue/brown tassels were used by company grade officers (lieutenants and captains)
