ARTIFACT:

This is a great, large, early WWII Chinese Blood Chit. It was made of dyed & inked multi-piece leather, for wear by a US Airman, most likely in India or Burma, as the characters were NOT inked on by anyone who had intimate knowledge of Chinese script! They are quite bizarre and amusing! 

Sadly the Chit was folded for many years in a slightly moist atmosphere, so the red from the flag has left its mark on the white area below. 

A nice addition to any Blood Chit / Rescue Patch collection.

VINTAGE: World War II.

SIZE: Approximately 10-1/2" in height x 8-5/8" in width.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Dyed & inked multi-piece leather

ATTACHMENT: To be sewn on.

CONDITION: 6+ (Fine - Very Fine) I would grade this much higher, as it has little wear or soiling, but I av to take into account the staining.
