Odd Asian 'Mickey Mouse' Token- Can Someone Tell Me What This Is?
I acquired two of these a plastic bin full of miscellaneous tokens at the B&M yesterday. I'm a US Coin guy and don't know a lot about foreign coins, but I found them interesting and they were cheap.
It's made of aluminum and is about the size of a US quarter. It appears to have a caracature of the post-1920's/30's Mickey Mouse (though it isn't completely accurate, i.e. the bow tie) on one side, and what looks like the rising sun either rising from a 'military helmet' or wearing a 'military helmet' (I don't know which is right-side up) on the other. Those are just my impressions of the designs and could be completely wrong on all counts.
Does anyone here know what this is? Thank you in advance!
