    Found this in an antique store for $15 I assumed it was Japanese but wasn't for sure. Thanks for the confirmation. Sorry if dumb question but why is Nippon a dead giveaway. This had some pretty heavy rust in some spots but it turned out OK after a cleanup.

    Nippon = Japanese. I think it's a translation of "Japan" in Japanese.

    Also, "Nip" is a racial slur for people of Japanese descent.
