WW2 era Manchukuo Enamel Star Commemorative Plaque

Today will be the last Manchukuo 5-colored star entry for a while; this item is a paperweight or a plaque.

Here, too, is a gold Army star and an anchor in addition to the Manchukuo star. The presence of these figures would suggest that the item is related to a military association even without the inscription. But we have an inscription as well: ‘Manchuria Soldier Relief Association, Special Merit Member.’

The two holes appear to be meant for a string of some sort, so this is probably a decorative plaque. However, if the strings were ornamental, it is possible that this is a paperweight. This was probably given to new members or to members who donated a certain amount of money.
