This is a rare later version of the Japanese tortoise compass charm. This version has the straight tail and is marked Japan on the bottom. The shell of this lifts to reveal a hidden working compass. Use this little compass to harmonize your inner environment :) The metal is testing as silver plate, with no brassing. It is in excellent condition and a very rare find. Measures as pictured; 29.45mm x 17.61mm x 6.96mm
